Son Serra Marina I
I know some photographs that are extraodrinary in their power and conviction, but it is difficult in photography to overcome the superficial power or subject; the concept and statement must be quite convincing in themselves to win over a dramatic and compelling subject situation.
- Ansel Adams -
Son Serra de Marina is a small settlement within the municipal district of Santa Margalida, located between the unspoilt beaches of Sa Canova and Son Real on the Bay of Alcúdia. The first pieces of land were sold in 1954 with certain social and moral conditions attached, such as not allowing men and women to bathe together. The buildings are all houses, most of which are used as second homes during the months of summer by people from inland Mallorca and other parts of Europe.
The beach of Son Serra de Marina is located within this residential area; it is 400 m long and 100 m wide.
The beach of Son Real is an unspoilt stretch of coast with a pool at the mouth of the torrent of Son Real, with fine white sand stretching along for 500 m, with a width that varies between 20 and 70 metres.
This images have been re edited in Capture One and coverted into a Folio. I'll be posting in the next weeks a total of 12 images. In the meantime if you like, you can see the whole series in my web site on the "Black & White Landscapes" portafolio
