Cyril and grandson I - Lalwari, Pentecost Island

Cyril is Georgeline's father. In the manner of fathers the world over, he can sometimes be curt, demanding and undemonstrative. But his love for his grandchildren is undeniable.

Traditional houses in Pentecost are constructed without windows, to protect against hurricanes. The only light in the house during my visit to Lalwari village came through the door. A flash would have been terribly intrusive, so I whiled away the rainy hours searching for the right low-light settings.
