Three Boys Swimming in Kavieng Papua New Guinea

During my work in a small PNG school, I worked a lot with young locals. This photo was taken after a day spent on a small neighbouring island. The boys played in the water while their mothers and I cooked taro and bananas. The three boys had never left the mainland, or seen their reefs through a snorkel before. The kids were inquisitive and eager to experience more of their world.
