Nauru Diary - Sally McInerney Photography

Shown at Ginkgo Gallery, Glebe, May 2013


Unintended autobiographies can be read between the lines of certain handmade signs and notices.

University of the South Pacific Nauru campus

University of the South Pacific Nauru campus. The emblem of USP Nauru incorporates the elegant symmetry of of the island’s traditional “string figures”, a South Pacific form of cat’s cradle. The Nauruan string figures are considered to have been the most complex and beautiful among those of all the South Sea islands.
