Shot over the course of 3 years on the Canary Islands. The series highlights the contrast between crowded beach towns and less popular natural parks.
The islands have become accessible because of low-budget airlines, but mostly only get appreciated for their climate. The colourful photographs show souvenirs from beach towns brought into nature. Leaving us with the question: what is natural? And how does it affect out planet.
Souvenirs From The Sun was runner up in the Sony World Photography Awards 2017. The series was exhibited in full at ThePrintSpace in London in January 2018.
The series is available on NFT platform Foundation.
