An elderly woman wears white for the Sunday church service on the Funafuti islet of Funafala. She has lived almost her entire life on the tiny, low-lying and perpetually damp islet, to where the populace of Funafuti, 400 people were deported during the American occupation of WW2. There are one or two families living there permanently but as land scarcity on Fogafale becomes more acute families are moving to Funafuti's other islets
