Images of Panarea and the Aeolian Islands

Rugged and volcanic, the Aeolian islands off north eastern Sicily are recognised and protected by Unesco as a World Heritage Site because of their unique natural beauty. 

Most of the images in this section are of Panarea, the smallest of the archipelago of seven islands, and where we have a house. This little island is a photographer’s dream place, and it has captivated me since the mid-1980s when I began photographing it. I am still today bewitched by strong light and contrasts of this island, by the jaw-dropping views of blinding white terraces and architecture overlooking the deep blue Mediterranean sea, punctuated with colourful splashes flowering bougainvilleas and cacti, and by the almost surreal landscapes of cuboid houses set amidst giant boulders, and fig, lemon and almond trees. 

My photographs of Panarea and the other islands have been shown in exhibitions in the UK, France and in the US, and are in countless private and corporate collections throughout the world, as well as having won various photographic awards. 

All of these images are available to purchase as limited edition prints.
