“I am standing in a street in Antigua, in a city lying just a few kilometers away from volcano Pacaya. Couple days ago this volcano could endanger lives of ten thousand people. Pacaya has woken up. After several years of silence it was spouting lava again. Nearby villages and cities were evacuated. People had to leave their homes; they left everything behind and ran for safety. Now, it’s quiet here again. Well, relatively quiet. I can still sense the suspense in the air. You can see from people’s faces that it’s not over and it never will be. I can tell it from the way they look at me, how they speak to me. I am just another gringo for them, a tourist passing by. I am a man who has no idea what they have to put up with. I try to understand them, see the situation in their eyes. I can’t express it with words and so I take pictures. A boy with a rugby ball is standing close to me. He is playing with another kid. Where were they a week ago? Did they have to get up and leave their homes? Were they woken up by the evacuation sirens? I don’t know. He looks happy. It’s a beautiful day, he is playing with kids, he has all he needs, yet I can still feel the tension. A few meters from him there are tourists in a restaurant. They are having a good time, enjoying their drinks, perhaps they don’t have a clue what drama happened here few days ago. Local people fascinate me. They are so self-possessed and proud. One can’t really capture this in photographs.”
