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 St. Vincent's La Soufriere volcano has violently erupted, displacing 60,000+ and causing irreparable damage. 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 continued for a number of weeks, and as a result, has displaced more than 60,000 of the island's residents. Homes, schools, and places of worship have been destroyed by the ash and the ensuing mudslides; vegetation has been destroyed, which will create a food shortage on the island, and as a result, the people of St. Vincent's lives have been changed forever.
Gabija Mitchell, our project collaborator and daughter of former St. Vincent prime minister James Fitz-Allen Mitchell has been on the ground supplying locals with important necessities like clean food, water, shelter, among other important items.
