Les sanglots longs
Des violons
De l’automne
Blessent mon coeur
D’une langueur
Monotone.

Tout suffocant
Et blême, quand
Sonne l’heure,
Je me souviens
Des jours anciens
Et je pleure

Et je m’en vais
Au vent mauvais
Qui m’emporte
Deçà, delà,
Pareil à la
Feuille morte.

Life of Gwada

How many subjects, bodies, faces, landscapes, situations I missed during my seven days in Guadeloupe. How many of them I tried to capture while driving around with the friends of Île du Monde on the whirling roads of Basse-Terre and Grande-Terre. Time’s up, looking forward for my return to you, Gwada. Many thanks to Josè, Stephanie, Daniel and his family for the exciting atmosphere during our stay on Guadeloupe.

In need of protection

Protection for human rights, bio-diversity, history and tradition. Protection is a word with several meanings in Guadeloupe. A recent history of blood shed to fight slavery and of worker immigration from all over the world, well documented in the museum Memorial ACTe, is at the base of Gwada modern society.

I had a dream

Guadeloupe standard of living is among the highest in the eastern Caribbean. Bananas and sugarcane are the principal cash crops. Tourism is one of the strongest sources of income. Still, high prices due to the protected French market are among the causes for the weak economic improvement of the last decades. Guadeloupe is a place of contrasts, where pockets of poverty and neglected infrastructures are interspersed between amazing nature and friendly people.
