Tuvalu is tiny, both in land area and population. Only 26km² of land (across 9 atolls/islands spread over a vast area of the Pacific Ocean) makes it the fourth tiniest nation in the world by area. Its population is only around 10,000 people, the world’s third tiniest population. But Tuvalu is still a nation with its own languages, culture and identity.
To highlight Tuvalu’s precarious future due to climate change, and draw attention to the hopes and stories of individuals who make up Tuvalu – one at a time – the NGO Tuvalu Overview has been working on a project to photograph all 10,000 Tuvaluans. It appears that the project has visited several islands, but still has more to do.
