Photographer's Note

Pls take note this is a dyptich (two photos).

Above : the Yasur volcano on Tanna island, spitting projections of orange color lava, beneath the deep blue sky of dusk.
It's a unique almost scary experience to sit on the rim, watch the fireworks, smell the sulfur odors, feel the vibes and hear the groans of the earth.
The darker the day gets, the closer you feel from the lava to a point you think you're almost at reach from the lava projections.

Below : the John Frum tribe, located right beneath the Yasur, is also the guardian of the volcano : they can interpret every move every sound of it.
Every friday night of their life, the villagers sing and dance for the return of John Frum, sailing back to the island on his glaring white cargo boat.

I don't know of any country where nature and mysticism are so much bound than in Vanuatu.
