About the Book
The Essence Of The Green Island started as Eduardo's personal project, with a collection of 50 beautiful black and white photographs of some of the places and things he photographed, that evoked in him the memories and nostalgia of the first thirty years of his life in the island of Sao Miguel (aka The Green Island), in the Azores, Portugal.
He then realized that he could help other people with his photographs, namely, immigrants from the island and tourists wanting to find out about Sao Miguel, before traveling there.
Eduardo has dedicated this book to both his parents that passed away recently.
I'm a contemporary digital artist, author of photo books and a fine art photographer living and traveling in North America in an RV, with my wife and three small furry friends. I have a passion for creating computer manipulated artworks based on photographs I take, aka Photo Art. I am also committed to master digital painting and love creating works of art that resemble real oil and watercolors. Photo books allow me to share my love for art with a larger number of people and, why not, the world. You can find me at www.eduardotavaresart.com
