The 15 statues of Anse Caffard in Martinique

These 15 statues, 2,50 meters (8 feet) high for a weight of 4 tons each, commemorates the tragedy of April 9, 1830 when a transporting ship of slaves sunk during a storm off Martinique, a French Island in the Carribean Sea. This monument which pays homage to the victims, shows that everywhere in the world, the man has and continuous with pitilessly controlling other men. During the shipwreck, 46 bodies were recovered and buried at the Diamant cemetery; 86 people were saved: all were of African origin. The majority of these survivors were transferred to Fort De France, the capital of the Islandfrom France. 6 people remained on the spot to be cured after by a coloured free man, whose name was Borromé. Today, his descendants still live in Anse Caffard. This monument has a triangular form which points out the triangular trade between Europe, Africa and Americas. The monument points 110 degrees to the Gulf of Guinea from where the unknown ship had come from. The white color of the statues is the traditional worm in funerals in the Caribbean.

The artwork named Cap 110, was created by artist Laurent Valére.

Website Updates

We continually update our website with new and exciting features! As professional photographers of wildlife, underwater scenes, and landscapes, this mainly pertains to information about our work, as well as adventures we embark upon. Our professional photography blog is particularly written for photographers who are interested in discovering innovative doors of creativity through the medium of nature photography.



Amar and Isabelle Guillen. Professional Photographers of nature.

We are fascinated and passionate about the beauties of nature. We love to see the landscapes and observe wild animals whether on land or underwater. We have chosen to become professional photographers to share the emotions we feel when we observe nature whether it be on land or underwater. Our goal is to create art with our photographs. We always try to transform the banal into a contemplative and artistic interpretation.

We are wildlife professional photographers, landscape professional photographers and underwater professional photographers. We also strive to document nature with a focus on conservation and education.

We make art prints from our artistic photographs. These art prints are available on our website. We make exhibitions to show all the beauties and the incredible richness of nature that surrounds us.

We also love to share our love for the beauties of nature with other photographers. To communicate our know-how and to exchange our techniques and our points of view, we organize wildlife photography workshops, underwater photography workshops and landscape photography workshops. We gather together people who have the same passion as us for the beautiful photographs taken in nature.
