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.
My name is Eduardo Tavares. I am a full-time contemporary digital artist, author and fine art photographer living and traveling in North America in an RV, with my wife and two furry friends. I have a passion for creating computer manipulated artworks, based on photographs I take, and digital paintings that resemble real oil and watercolor paintings. Together with a love for all forms of art, it is only natural that I started creating picture books, including books for children, to share my creations with a larger number of people. Many of my works are published in print and online publications and being enjoyed in private collections around the world.
