Susan Turner has spent fourteen of the past twenty years living in Papua New Guinea, a country just past the threshold which separates rare traditinal ways of life from the outer world. Living as she has among the indigenous people, her view is much more from the inside than from the outside.
These photographs reach far beyond a visitor’s curiosity or a researchers ethnography as Turner’s subjects become gracious and natural collaborators. These tender yet authoritative photographs show remarkable original people at their work as hunters, gatherers, and farmers, sharing the hope and persistence that are at the center of their lives.

In the 1980s, oil was discovered near Lake Kutubu in the Southern Highlands of Papua New Guinea. Following the completion of a pipeline from the oil field to a marine terminal in the Gulf of Papua in 1992, the Kutubu Petroleum Development Project became the country’s first oil producer.
This book offers a picture of daily life in the project area during 1991 and 1992. A consideration of the changing meanings that objects and customs have for the local people give a sense of contemporary life, not only in the impact area, but in rural Papua New Guinea in general.
