BORA BORA, impressions of an island, is Erwin Christian’s tribute to his adopted island home. Since settling in Bora Bora in 1965, this self-taught photographer kept his sensibility as finetuned as his camera, capturing the essence of his island’s moods and its unique natural beauty. It is is a fresco of 95 colour photographs through which Erwin Cristian leads us to discover his island from the air, from far away at sea, or through the interior of a tropical forest. We dive with him into the underwater fairyland of the island’s magnificent lagoon and outside the reef amongst barracuda and sharks. BORA BORA, impressions of an island, is above all a testimony of Erwin Christian’s profound respect towards the islanders. In his images taken during the Heiva festivities there is more than the conventionally beautiful; they reflect well the marvellous and enviable Polynesian joie de vivre.(Publisher).
