STOPOVER, both an exhibition and a book, comes out of a grim period in Fiji between the 2000 Speight coup and the 2006 Bainimarama coup.

The first was a cynical grab at lost political power and privilege, and the second a response to the endemic corruption of an inaptly called 'democratic' government. The images look in at an extended fourth- and fifth-generation Indian-Fijian family, sugar cane farmers on leased land in the west of Fiji's main island, Viti Levu, as they examine their position as second-class citizens of an unsettled country.
