Steph Segarra ‘Desert island’
In search of a ‘Desert island’ amidst the mountains of Manatí, Steph Segarra captures the latest range of stunning jewellery by Puerto Rican native/New York based designer, Luiny.
“It was one of those days when the weather’s all over the place. It would rain for a lil bit & then it would be beautiful &sunny. We stopped by an elder lady to ask for directions, she was carrying almonds in plastic bags & was accompanied by two kids. When we were arriving it even seemed like a storm was coming, but we were determined to shoot. We waited it out in the car until the rain was gone. When we got out at Playa Esperanza we were overwhelmed with excitement. An immense rock wall surrounded the beach of turquoise blue water & the shore was full of tiny seashells. There were only 4 more people around so we almost had the place to ourselves. We explored the surroundings as if we were in a deserted island & shot until the sun was gone.”
