What is striking is not just the beautiful landscapes, their colors or the people and their culture, but also the other side of the island. This other side is made of decadence and abandonment, empty buildings that an average tourist would not or could not notice.
Karl himself admits “I used to have fun for hours on those water slides and after 15 years I was so surprised to see it was still there. But now it was abandoned and no longer in use… It was a bitter-sweet moment. It made me sad to see that it turned out like that, the energy of the place had almost disappeared. Nonetheless, it allowed me to remember how it once was and inspired me not only to take this picture but also to share this story with you all“.
