The following contemporary images of Tuvalu have managed to capture many beautiful and modern images that represent Tuvalu in a way that it has never been represented internationally before. These pictures portray and capture the essential essence of this most unique of Polynesian nations in a series of fascinating portraits. This will be the first in a series of Web sites devoted to contemporary images of Tuvalu.
TUVALU, MY TUVALUTuvalu, my Tuvalu the land across the sea
Surrounded by the ocean, you mean so much to me
I miss these coral atolls with gentle swaying palms
With smiling gentle people, so peaceful and so calm. Tuvalu, my Tuvalu I always think of you
Wherever I may travel across the sea so blue
And deep inside me I know that it will be
Tuvalu, my Tuvalu you always think of me. Your sons and daughters travel away to distant lands
They leave their homes and families so that they will understand
To study truth and knowledge in sadness and in pain, and then
Tuvalu, my Tuvalu you welcome them home again. Tuvalu, my Tuvalu may God’s blessings be on you
To give you strength and courage to see the future through
And may our blessed people hold their heads up high
Tuvalu, my Tuvalu I will love you till I die. Poem by Jane Resture
CONTEMPORARY IMAGES OF FUNAFUTI, TUVALU
Since the following pictures (below) were taken in 2000, there had been a number of changes in the Tuvalu landscape in less than two years!
The people of Tuvalu (Funafuti) now have paved roads, speed humps and street signs. It is still a long time until a big casino gambling centre is built, but Tuvalu is developing at a phenomenal pace. The capital of Tuvalu, Funafuti, is now lit with street lights from one end to the other. Robert Girdo and his wife Kerrie returned from Tuvalu on 24th May 2002 and they have kindly made available many excellent updated images on their great Tuvalu 2002 Web site www.girdo.com/tuvalu taken in May 2002.
