Frozen instants in the daily lives of the Rapa Nui people as we saw it and experienced it back in 1978.
We spent four magnificent weeks living with a local family. We got to know their own family, friends and their customs as well.
They even taught us how to cook fish on the traditional way, over pre-heated stones.
We were part of family celebrations with native songs and dancing, away from the tourist circuit.
Please do excuse us for the lower quality of some images shown here. We are including them not because of their photographic value per se, but as a true historic document about Easter Island more than thirty years ago. Unfortunately, many of our Color, Infrared and B&W images captured in the island were lost or stolen.
You are more than welcome to help us enlarge Easter Island Photo Gallery Part Two with your own contribution, whether a picture, a story, or both.
We will publish them all and rest assured your copyright is going to be respected and mentioned. Furthermore, you will have your own page to refer to family and friends apart from being part of the gallery itself.
