Books

I do have several books published, two recent ones being closest to my heart. Both of them are thick, elegant coffee table books containing several hundreds of my photographs.
They both are on the subject I love – Caribbean islands.   You can learn more about them on publisher’s site Ozone Zone Books.

“A book so thick and decedent you can almost feel the tropical warmth penetrating from the heady images.” – San Francisco Book Reviews 2010 “
A distinctive book.” – Library Journal May 2010

Tropical Homes of the Eastern Caribbean  won Gold at Benjamin Franklin Book Awards 2010 in New York.  This fine international award is given for book publishing excellence. The same title was also shortlisted for Eric Hoffer Award 2010 for Excellence in Independent Publishing.

More comments and reviews:
“The authors’ passion for the Caribbean shines though on every page. The character of the lightly written stories, combined with the superb photography, creates a light and joyful reading experience full of the Caribbean sun.
– Sir Martin Taylor FRS, UK & Grenada”

“A delirious architectural tour of the most exotic and fanciful homes in the Caribbean, this exquisitely photo¬graphed collection of eye-popping residences is bursting with playfully challenging design. While the work featured might not be applicable to every home, getting lost in the images is a vacation in itself. The sense of liberation and unbridled exuberance is nothing short of thrilling. This gets my vote for best book to curl up with in January when you want a respite from the Wisconsin winter. “
– Robert Bundy, Milwaukee Home & fine living   July 2010

“You’ll find instant, sunny gratification in the 304 pages of lush photographs… The words and stories are entertaining, but photographs are especially arresting. The colour intense pictures may well ignite your own trip of discovery to islands, leaving winter behind.”
– Ottawa Citizen, Canada

“It’s a display of fascinating samples selected from the wealth of architectural styles abounding in the region.”
– EGO magazine, Montreal

“The new coffee table book gives readers a taste of the different architectural styles found on the Caribbean Islands — in an extraordinary intensity.”
– Times Colonist, Canada
