About Adrift on the equator lies Kiribati, a remote nation of 33 islands.
The country is expected to be one of the first to lose all its land territory due to climate change and rising sea levels. The fate of the nation and its people hangs poised as plans for its population migration have now started.
For Verdon-Roe, a month spent in Kiribati resulted in the documentation of everyday encounters and observations captured during her stay. The resulting photographs are a varied collection of portraits, landscapes and still lifes; she bears witness to the culture and everyday lives of the I-Kiribatese.
If there is a single thread to the diversity of the images, it is the attempt to capture and preserve a place on the verge of disappearance.
