ALDABRA - PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION
KOŠICE (SLOVAKIA) 9 - 20 NOVEMBER 2015
This collection of photographs is to complement the exhibition "Aldabra" which took place in Košice (Slovakia) between 9th and 20th November 2015.
Aldabra is the second largest atoll in the world. It is situated in the Indian Ocean and is a part of the Outer Islands of the Seychelles. Aldabra is extremely remote and virtually uninhabited, thanks to this a unique ecosystem has been preserved there. The atoll has the largest population of giant tortoises in the world (100,000), it is home to the last surviving flightless bird in the Indian Ocean and has the largest colony of frigate birds in the Indian Ocean.
Between 2010 and 2012 I spent ten months on Aldabra as a research ornithologist and had a chance to photograph the unique wildlife. I worked mainly with the white-throated rail and frigatebirds but was also involved in most aspects of the island work and life.
