Photographer's Note

Kavala bay, a small but nonetheless vital pier located at the eastern tip of remote Kadavu island, in Fiji.

There are three main days in the fijian week, the other days are there to give people a rest in between : Saturday is for the village Rubgy match, Sunday goes for the church service and wednesday is teh busiest of all, with the weekly ferry arrival coming from the big city, Suva.

When Mo told me the ferry arrival was the main cultural experience, I thought she was joking at me. She was not : it was a cultural experience indeed.
The whole Kadavu people was there, spreading their whole life on the grassy landing field.

Since there are no roads on the 80km long Kadavu island, everyone comes and goes on a boat, everything happens on a boat : good news, bad news and even a start for a newlife.

Hence ferries carry altogether goods, friends and hope.
