Hurricane Irma Book
49 Euro + Shipping
As you know, St Barth faced the horrific Hurricane Irma on September 6th, 2017.
As a photographer, I was approached by a lot of people on the island to take photos to try to immortalize this historic Hurricane.
At the beginning, I was very conflicted about taking photographs of these unreal, tragic and apocalyptic scenes as I have been living on St Barth for 22 years and it is my home.
However, after deep contemplation, I thought that I had to find the time and the courage to be strong as a photographer and immortalize this terrible event for the future generations.
So, I began a photography project just 48 hours after Irma destroyed St Barth.
I have introduced my project to Mr. Nils Dufau, the President of Tourism Committee of Saint Barthélemy. He showed much appreciation for my initiative and even offered to write the editorial of the book. He strongly and eloquently stated, « In a year, there will be but a few visible traces of hurricane Irma. That’s why this collection of eyewitness reports is so important. »
I dedicate this book to the beauty of the Caribbean Islands, to the tiny island of St Barths, to all of the people who call this magical place on earth «home», and to those who come from near and far to help heal the wounds of Hurricane Irma 2017. For those of us who call this magical rock in the Caribbean sea «home», I want to thank you for your unrelenting courage, solidarity, and strength.
