A time in the South Pacific (1990)

I have always dreamt of one day going to this idyllic faraway place 'The Island' with all the physical attributes of perfect happiness: warmth, sun, clear water, tropical fish, abundant flora… a kind of living without moral and philosophical complications. And like to many European ancestors since the discovery of the South Pacific, I duly went.

In the photographs I recall some of the happenings that dazzled me for a while in this place of elemental beliefs and fabulous tribal histories. This perfect place, this paradise, can of course only be in the mind.
