Photographer's Note

São Tomé, coupled with the even smaller island of Principe, straddling the equator, has won the geological lottery: a state the size of the Isle of Wight, with a population of just 150,000, could soon become the Qatar or Kuwait of Africa.

Its people, mainly dirt-poor subsistence farmers, will theoretically be worth millions of dollars each within a generation.

The interest alone on São Tomé's expected oil finds in a few years should repair its diabolical roads, pay off its $300m debt, wipe out its rampant malaria and rebuild its decrepit schools and hospitals.

There could be so much money that no São Toméan need ever work again... leaving the WRECKED situation...

THERE WILL BE NO MORE WRECKS.....?
