A good buddy of mine asked to go on a trip to take some photos. What has come out of that project has been some unforgettable memories and real creds. We went out to characterize an underwater volcano and the science happening in such a remote place. The Western Province of the Solomon Islands is truly a place where the balance between the natural ecosystem and the people who need it to survive are closely woven together.

Brennan asked me to join and document the science. The people, their land, and the beauty surrounding the island of Gatokae became the story for me.
