The island of Simeulue, Sumatra, went through an epic transformation in its coastal landscape. The north western part of the island rose by about 1.5 metres, leaving coral reefs exposed. A landscape of scientific phenomenon and aesthetic wonder emerged, albeit from life rudely interrupted. Welcome to land that never was.
