Soon It Will Be Dark
Life on the island follows the changing pace of day and night. Where the only road seeps into the forest, the air gets warmer, more humid. Here, in the shade of tall trees, a man is at work with his machete. The sounds he produces blend in with the sounds of the all-embracing nature. His daily routine is directed by light and shadow until the sun sets. At night, at the other end of the road, his loneliness is softened by the voices of the others, next to the warming fire, until the first light.
