Chiefs, Queens, Witches and a Girl from San Juan
Photographs of Ibiza by Ines Schramm
This book of photographs paints a multifaceted portrait of Ibiza, the popular Balearic island. Its clichéd reputation as the party hotspot of the jet set stands in stark contrast to the poetry of a landscape shaped by its inhabitants and the tranquillity of nature.
Photographer Ines Schramm, who lives in Ibiza, uses her camera to interpret the island and its residents in carefully staged images and expressive snapshots. She provides an insight into life there that differs from the usual perspective. The book intertwines the traditional lives of the local people with the residents and tourists who have come to the island from all over the world. The viewer is drawn into the magic of a hidden world.
