Zanzibar, Mauritius, Madagascar, Sao Tomé & Principe, Cape Verde Islands – just the names of these places makes us think of dream beaches, spices and stories from distant countries.
In the five-part series ‘above the islands of Africa’ five internationally renowned photographers explore the islands around the continent.
Alongside Ami Vitale and Mathias Ziegler, Wiesbaden-based photographer Rui CAMILO photographed the Sao Tomé & Principe islands.
On the search for spectacular perspectives for their aerial photographs, stories and portraits, no challenge was too tough for the photographers who used unusual methods of transport, from motorised parachutes to a flying rubber boat, to get the shots they wanted.
