St. Jean à la Nuit

Piece description from the artist

About "St. Jean à la Nuit" | St. Jean and Gustavia are St. Barth's most well-known and well-traveled areas. They are often bustling, especially in high season, and I wanted to show that energy while still reflecting the rest of the island's serene nature. Here we see the iconic Eden Rock jutting out into the bay as boats sway nearby and the traffic passes quickly along the main roadways. Then, in the foreground and distance you see fewer lights and activity; you see the topography, hints of the flora, and the unspoken quiet the permeates as you step away from the main neighborhoods.

I decided to take a two month sabbatical in order to reconnect with my photographic roots. I rented the cheapest house on the island with the richest experience: I got to live next door to locals, learned about some hidden spots on the island, picked up some local dialect, and even discovered a new plant with holistic healing properties. I also rediscovered some slumbering techniques and styles that I quickly re-embraced. What resulted is a body of artwork of which I am very proud.
