Summary

Mount Hagen is the capital of Papua New Guinea's Western Highlands Province and the country's third largest city, but this book of landscape format documentary photographs, taken mainly from a vehicle, shows the city and its environs not as a highly developed urban centre but as an unruly, predominantly rural place. The roads are nearly all unpaved, the buildings mainly tin sheds and vernacular concrete block constructions, with people on the move in nearly every picture. The overwhelming impression is of a place with an extraordinarily vibrant street life.
