Uncover Your Caribbean is so excited to introduce to you an upcoming project by Dominican Photographer Yuri Jones – Majestic and Magical, a fine art photo-book that is layered with the most stunning images of Dominica and its unrivaled natural beauty.
We first met Yuri a little over a year ago when we came across his striking photos on social media. We immediately reached out to him and would eventually partner on a piece he wrote for this website. We have kept in touch since, and you can imagine how excited we were when we found out he was about to compile many of his breathtaking photos in one place!
Yuri’s photos tell stories. Stories that are as colorful as the vivid hues of Dominica. His photos are just as vibrant and brilliant as the journey he embarked on to build this coffee table book. Yuri is a self-taught Photographer and has been capturing the enchantment of Dominica, and island filled with hot springs and tropical rainforests, for the past five years.
Dominica is a terrain that lends itself to countless opportunities to capture its beauty. One example is a photo from the book’s “Close to Home” section entitled “Shine the Light”. This photo was captured in Bayfront, Roseau at 5:30am and its search for light gently pulls you to its mountains at the moment right before the sun is about to rise. You can almost feel the wind sweeping the clouds. That’s the power and the artistry behind Yuri’s photos and behind Majestic and Magical.
Majestic and Magical, a hardcover book, features more than 130 images of the Nature Isle. Images that jumps off the pages to immerse you in the landscape and warmth of this very unique island paradise. It includes captions that tell a story and brief write-ups of Dominica and its history.
We are in love with this project.
Yuri is currently running a Kickstarter program to fund Majestic And Magical. If you are interested and want to be a part of seeing this beauty come to life, check out the campaign HERE.
