“There’s something about the light on the Balearic island of Mallorca, that has attracted artists and photographers here to capture its beauty for centuries.”

Mallorca lies on a route between continents, so it has long been a melting pot of cultures that made it more open to varying cultural and artistic influences. So many prominent artists have come and revelled in its bohemian spirit, finding inspiration in both the city and the island itself. Miró dwelt on the quality of the light here and the incomparable landscapes and, in his letters home, the composer Chopin wrote of Mallorca: ‘A sky like turquoise, a sea like lapis lazuli, mountains like emerald, air like heaven’. OutThere’s Creative Director captures its magic.
