The images in my ‘Rust Coast’ series were taken on a short section of coastline east of Honiara in the Solomon Islands. Ships and vehicles that reach the end of their usefulness are dumped along the shoreline.  In the 12 years that I have been visiting this location I have recorded the changing seascape as rusting hulks are stripped, some metal salvaged and then left to rust away, and new wrecks added. Local people with limited resources eke a living in their shadows. The compositions change but the elements of rusting waste and poverty have remained the same.
