It is always very sad for me to acknowledge how under-appreciated the island of Lampedusa has been and still is… I wish I could change this narrative. There is so much beauty in each and every smallest Sicilian corner that a trip over there should happen at least once in a lifetime. It will create addiction, I guarantee. There is so much, too much, I love about Sicily, its islands and its beautiful culture over there, that I struggle to explain with words. So I let my camera do the talking.

Lampedusa is at the same level of North Africa, so dryness is a keyword here. The land over there is really earth, the sun is the fiercest you could ever feel and swimming in that sea is like flying in a sky of blue. It is a beautiful, small, dazzling planet where alien-like flowers and plants and greeneries grow onto yellow and orange rocks. What a scene!
