A meditative guide through the Azores archipelago’s history and its inhabitants’ connection to the volatile land.
Part retelling of creation legend, part mysterious record of modern-day life, Spirts and Rocks: An Azorean Myth chronicles – in breathtaking, broody black-and-white – the fragility and strength of the islands’ community, and their reverence, fear and awe at nature’s prowess.
