Beautiful side of hell

The artwork

This tiny white island sits near Mayotte south coast. The picture was taken from Ali’s boat, the leader from the remote village of M’Tsamboro. On this day he was bringing Sea Shepherd’s crew on a scouting mission around Mayotte, looking for the beaches where the sea turtles nest, and where the poachers are waiting for them. This heavenly picture shows all what Mayotte is about : a land that has been spoiled and burnt slowly, where untouched nature is becoming very rare.

The artist

“I think that during my childhood I spent more time using my dad cameras than him. I’ve always been feeling the need to capture the moments that meant something to me. Growing on a sailing boat forced me to become a contemplative guy. I had to make something with all this time – that can stretch a lot at sea – so I started to record it on films and memory cards” Max spent his youth on his parents wooden ship and on Oléron island in France. Then he decided to stick with his passion for his living. “Today I try to record beautiful stories as a director of photography. This job already took me to incredible places, and made me feel joy and excitation as well as doubt and fear.” His pictures also show the importance of nature conservation for him. “The places I capture are beautiful but often endangered. Creating memories of those will not save them but I hope that my work will help convince people who are still wondering about the importance of conservation.”
