The Men Who Would be King follows several American and European men who traveled to the nation of Vanuatu, claiming to be the fulfillment of a prophecy to become a powerful leader on the island of Tanna. In this exhibition, photographer Jon Tonks and writer Christopher Lord examine the varied response to the foreign men who reach for imaginary power, as they sift through the remnants of colonialism and its ongoing ramifications on the islands.
