The Black Death


The Wakashio’s oil spill will go down in Mauritian history, as the year Mauritians faced its biggest environmental catastrophe.
The Japanese ship leaked over 1 ton of oil into the crystal clear waters of Pointe D’Esny and the lagoon’s strong currents rapidly directed the substances towards the North East of the island.
Those currents created beautiful yet chaotic patterns.
With the use of a drone, I was able to assist the community to locate and assume the oil trajectory in order to try and prevent it from reaching the emblematic mangroves.

By exploring the complex intertwined relationship between destruction and beauty. The photograph tries to express two opposite feelings, the pleasuring beauty of the abstract, versus the sadness of mankind’s disastrous errors.

My work focuses on aerial perspectives, from which I rediscover and redefine landscapes and habitats created by Nature. I try to deliver different insights into our complex Environment through abstract images.
