Formentera, an analog impression

Photography is one of the most powerful means of expression. Andrea Amado, a young photographer from Spain, felt that analog photography was the best way to share feelings and thoughts. Here is her analog impression of Formentera, an island belonging to the Spanish Balears.

She did not need colours to make her pictures alive. The black and white evoke the stillness and quietness of the island, that is usually bustling with people. For a moment, Formentera forgets to be one of the most famous tourist destinations in the Mediterranean. It rediscovers the silent peace of its nature and its origins as a fishermen’s island.

We thank Andrea for this beautiful memento of her time on the island, and we hope you will enjoy it as well.

I started early, took my dog,
And visited the sea;
The mermaids in the basement
Came out to look at me.

And frigates in the upper floor
Extended hempen hands,
Presuming me to be a mouse
Aground, upon the sands.

But no man moved me till the tide
Went past my simple shoe,
And past my apron and my belt,
And past my bodice too,

And made as he would eat me up
As wholly as a dew
Upon a dandelion’s sleeve –
And then I started too.

And he – he followed close behind;
I felt his silver heel
Upon my ankle, – then my shoes
Would overflow with pearl.

Until we met the solid town,
No man he seemed to know;
And bowing with a mighty look
At me, the sea withdrew.

“By the sea”, Emily Dickinson
