Icons of Mustique
In September of 2020, Michael Orso shot a series of intimate portraits of the icons of the private and illustrious island of Mustique, just 10 miles off the coast of St. Vincent with executive producer Ally Hilfiger and creative partner and island native
In April of 2021, the La Soufriere Volcano in St. Vincent's began an explosiove eruption, and as a result, has displaced 20,000+ residents, leaving thousands without clean running water. Gabija has been on the ground providing aid to the locals, and in order to support her effort, we will be selling fine art prints of the portraits we shot, titled Icons of Mustique, to support her Vincy Volcano Relief Fund.
La Soufriere Volcano
In April of 2021, the La Soufriere Volcano in St. Vincent began an explosive eruption that has continued for a number of weeks, and as a result, has displaced more than 20,000 of the island's residents and left thousands of people without access clean drinking water. Homes, schools, and places of worship have been turned into shelters, many homes housing in poor living conditions: unpreprepared, beyond full capacity, and during a pandemic. Devastation left by the ash and the unsuing concrete like mudslides (Lahars) are creating a food shortage on the island; NPR called the situation in St. Vincent a pending humanitarian crisis.
Gabija Mitchell, our project collaborator and daughter of former St. Vincent Prime Minister Sir. James Fitz-Allen Mitchell has been on the ground supplying locals with important necessities like clean food, water, shelter, among other important items.
