FAERY LANDS Tahiti By François Nars

Since 1994, Nars’ photographic compositions have been celebrated for their vibrant interplay of color and
form. While Nars finds inspiration everywhere, his abiding influence is old Hollywood glamour, with a
specific fondness for the romantic South Seas. After several trips to French Polynesia, Nars was so taken
with the region that he purchased Motu Tané, an island off the coast of Bora Bora. For over ten years he
has been capturing the landscape, the culture, and the people of this region with assiduous attention to
detail. In a departure from his recognized subject matter, Faery Lands is the first published collection of
his personal photographs.

Eschewing the digital format, Nars uses a large format film camera to capture the intrinsic beauty of the
islands and its inhabitants, offering the reader a private tour of this tropical paradise. The rich sepiatoned
portraits juxtaposed with radiant seascapes are nothing but bewitching. Faery Lands is a musthave
for style, travel, and culture enthusiasts.
