For nearly 20 years Australian photojournalist Ben Bohane has documented the remote peoples of Melanesia. In his new book, The Black Islands – Spirit and War in Melanesia, Bohane explores the customs and rituals of those who live beyond the ‘picture postcard’ view of the South Pacific islands. Deeply spiritual, often superstitious, the Black Islands harbour ancient beliefs, customs and cults that offer the photojournalist a rich palette from which to draw and give the viewer an insight into unknown worlds.
