Gwadloup Carnets: Circulating around


Recommended Posts

  We cannot summerzise an entenry geographical entity like the Guadeloupe archipelago in a short description because all those islands represent a continent of geology, vegetal, animal and human different testimonies. We can only surface the very mean of them and we can only do a short and fragmented survey of what has been and still is as a maritime civilisation that may be opposed to our urban views and bias. 



We are voyagers with very limited observing senses and with a very narrow memory capacities and even if our archival finds seem to be extended, we have gradually lost our historical curiosity in profit of a flashing live of secured and low grade emotions. Collecting destinations stickers on our virtual luggages wont replace the true experience of getting a real taste of the unknown countries and peoples.



Guadeloupe can be seen as a segmented human society in its economic and cultural sectarisme, an obvious fact that nobody cannot really denied and which is also the case of many human settlements around the world. But this relative absence of multilateral exchanges of any kind is creating a more static view than an evolutionary one. For an outside observer like me, it means also that everything in Guadeloupe has not really changed since my last visit six years ago.


A land of contrasts between the favorite ones among the natives, the seasonal, the visitors and others. And sometimes thoses contrasts can be observed side by side. In brief, a true human kaleidoscope that is very interesting to photograph!

A trace of light that survive a little further than the actual moment of flash.
