“I like the butterfly because of the colour. When I see them I want to play with them, I want to fly”, says David.
David grew up on Mataso and was schooled there, with seven other children. His family migrated to Hollen village, Port Vila. During his time on Mataso he would catch butterflies as a young boy.
In this image, the striking blue background sets for the image of the butterfly in black and white. The strength of image lies in its boldness and a sense of optimism, hope and joy. These features are emblematic of the Mataso youth of Ohlen village, Port Vila.
