Next Generation: Solomon Islands After RAMSI

Huw Davies Gallery, PhotoAccess, ACT.
Next Generation: Solomon Islands After RAMSI is a photographic exhibition of daily life in Honiara at the end of RAMSI. After 14 years of the Australian led Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands, this Pacific Island nation now looks towards its future as a fully-fledged, self-determined country. Sean Davey was recently commissioned by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to photograph in and around Honiara in June/July 2017 to mark the drawdown of RAMSI and to produce a set of documentary photographs that reveal the state of the country at this pivotal moment in its history.
