La Palma: Rebuilding lives

Updated: May 30, 2022

A volcanic eruption on the Spanish island of La Palma is over after almost three months of daily activity.

The eruption, which began September 19, is the longest on record on La Palma and has been a milestone for islanders, many of whom live from farming and tourism.

However, several thousand people were forced to abandon their homes, and a section of La

Fiery molten rock flowing from Cumbre Vieja down toward the sea has also destroyed around 3,000 buildings on La Palma.

I created this lino print to capture the essence of the local people, reflecting their anxiety and the hopelessness of the situation. Although the volcano has stopped the situation for the people is still uncertain.
