abstract, fine art and archaeological images


these images were taken on the island of stromboli, with a thornton pickard plate camera. the images are of both stromboli town, the main settlement on the north east of the island, and ginostra, the small village nestled on the south-west side. stromboli is a dark, enchanted island with an active volcano, whose lava erupts in fiery plumes roughly every 20 minutes and whose black, gnarly rocks and even blacker sand make a spellbinding contrast with the pure white of the arabic-style houses with their flat rooves, porthole windows and castellated chimneys. stromboli is one of a group of seven islands collectively known as the aeolians, and together they form a cluster sited in the tyrrhenian sea between italy and sicily. they are accessible only by boat. images © of lorraine kerr and lorraine kerr photography 2016
