Located on the island of New Britain, Tavurvur is one of the most active and most dangerous volcanoes in Papua New Guinea. When the volcano violently erupted in 1994, ash was sent thousands of metres into the air and almost completely wiped out the nearby town of Rabaul. Since then, Tavurvur has displayed persistent activity and ash eruptions.

Lynton first visited Tavurvur for a year 12 geography excursion in 1982, eight years before the devastating eruption. In 2015 he returned to make this series of images. This is how Tavurvur appears now. Visible are the foundations of all but destroyed buildings, buried in a carpet of volcanic rock with occasional signs of new life sprouting through. Villagers who own the land can be seen hanging out amongst the dystopia, adding to the already surreal landscape.
