Sylvain (1920-1991) stopped over in Tahiti in 1946. The beauty of the landscape, the warm welcome of its people, and a native beauty named Tehani convinced him to stay. Like Gauguin before him, he was captivated by a land and a people so different from his own, and chose them for his life's work. Opulent and technically assured, his photos offer visions of an earthly paradise, inhabited by sensual women with flowers in their hair and the sun reflecting off their glowing skin. Capturing the timeless beauty of the islands, Sylvain's images are a testament to the extraordinary magnetism of Tahiti. They are here presented for the first time since his death.
