Officially the atoll is called the Republic of the Marshall Islands, named after John Marshall, the British explorer. While taking photographs at this graveyard, I kept remembering this brilliant thought: to keep your ancestors close, is to never feel lonely. There’s not that much space on this small island anyhow.
Is it a final resting place or a playground? A cemetery between the street and the sea, where children play hide and seek. People here treat their dead with respect. They don’t hide them but keep them close to daily life.
