Islands: Mallorca | Islands: Mallorca, is the first part of a conceptual photographic quadriptych "Island", focusing on the four main Balearic Islands (Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza, and Formentera) located near the east coast of Spain on an archipelago in the western part of the Mediterranean Sea. The idea emerged during the many months of my stay on Mallorca, where I worked, paid taxes, made friends, experienced the openness of the locals, and finally became the island's resident myself, strongly identifying with the local customs and culture while escaping the tourist fuss.

It is full of beautiful and undiscovered obelisks, landscapes, sun-roasted nature, and masonic mysteries - a perfect refuge for modern hippies and nomads.

However, beneath the surface there lies the energy of a place having its own identity, temperature, and colour. Cycle „Islands: Mallorca", which is the first conceptual documentary project about this spanish island. www.michalnarozny.com
