The Savaiian

I spent around 4 weeks in Samoa last summer photographing. I worked with 3 different groups from Utah Valley University. The main one was a group called Rheumatic Rescue that seeks to educate, screen and find a cure for Rheumatic Heart Disease. It is a preventable disease that affects children and can result in death due to heart failure. Many pictures will be shared from my time there. This diptych was taken at the hotel were our group stayed while on the island of Savai'i. I was wowed by this tree every time I walked past it. As we were packing up to leave the island I decided I couldn't leave without creating a picture of it.
