KING'S BIRTHDAY, TONGA

During various trips to Tonga Glenn has photographed Tongas' late King, Taufa'ahau Tupou IV. Glenn made two trips to Tonga in 2001 and 2003 and organised those to occur at the time of the King's birthdays.


Over recent years Glenn has documented the evolution of Pacific Island ceremonial and dance costume. King Tupou's birthday celebrations have provided an annual opportunity for the Tongan people to bring out their best performances and costume.
