St Helena captured on film

There is magical island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, south of Ghana, west of Angola, lies St Helena. A British Overseas territory, St Helena was isolated for years due to having no airfield. Now linked with the African Continent by an Embraer E190, the island has a weekly flight!

I captured the entire island on C41 and E6 film using a Nikonos V (fujicolor C41)and Yashicamat (Fujichorme and Tri X). It is hard to explaim quite how old fashioned and yet polite this magical little rock is.


We travelled there with the African and Oriental Travel Company, which is hardly surprising. They are the St Helena Experts.
