They photographed the arrival of the first plane ever to land at St Helena’s nearly-completed airport, and they photographed the people who turned out to see it: the human face of a historic day.

A report – and many more pictures – will appear on their blog, What The Saints Did Next, in the next few days. See also their Facebook page.
