About the Book
An insightful collection of images of the island of Barbados that re-define the meaning of Paradise. "Peripatetikos" is the story of one artist's journey of re-discovery. Over a period of 3 years, visual artist William St.James Cummins (native of Barbados) has seen beyond the gloss of island life through a camera trained on the unexpected, the hidden, the more mundane yet charming textures of his Caribbean home. Beautiful colour and black & white photographs (also available as prints).
