Ann Skinner-Jones and Joan Larcom Photographs

About this Collection

In 1981, Anthropologist Joan Larcom traveled with Photographer Ann Skinner-Jones to Vanuatu to create a photographic essay of the people and culture during the first anniversary of the country's independence from France and the United Kingdom. The collection focuses on the people's experiences of independence and new nationhood, mostly on the island of Malakula, where local people have refereed the interface between politics, custom and religion by re-categorizing tradition in creative ways.
