About the Book
"In “Staten Island,” Kike takes us on a visual journey to a seldom seen, remote island in Tierra del Fuego at the southern tip of South America. On the surface, the book is a visual diary of the voyage of the first foreign-flagged ship, the National Geographic/Lindblad Explorer, to visit this area in years.
But this is more than a mere visual diary. In his rich, detailed black and white photography, Calvo reveals a world of mythic proportions –stunning forests, exotic birds, and towering peaks– a magical place that inspired Jules Verne to write the book The Lighthouse at the End of the World.
Any photograph can capture what a place looks like, but it takes an artist with Kike Calvo’s talent and enthusiasm (in the classic sense of the word!) to capture the spirit of this magical land in this portfolio of gorgeous photography."
Bob Krist, National Geographic Photographer.
