Perhaps the islands of Kiribati will no longer exist. Swallowed by the sea, this century still, scientists think. Photographer Sanne Zurné (1988) went to look now it's still there. She saw a people living with the day, without worrying about tomorrow. Because in the frontline of climate change, people have no message to the sad fate that awaits them.

From her visit to this sinking archipelago, Zurné is bringing a book. About that sinking, but mostly about daily life on Kiribati. During her stay she became enchanted by the locals and their carefree attitude to life. As a photographer, her mission on the ground was to show man more than his problems. Her images come to life with a triad of amusing anecdotes that make you as a reader slowly get just as weak for Kiribati as they do.

Suddenly, as if the ocean set the clock on it, the water enters the village. And that goes rap,
As if the whole ocean is moving in one jump. There are even waves. Soon I'm up to my knees in the water. Fascinating, I think as I let my eyes go over that endless water plain: the village has turned into a swimming pool. Mr. Katoatau has now caught a card game. For him this is nothing new.
