Description
The travel narratives of European explorers who discovered Tahiti in the 18th century inspired the myth of a rediscovered Eden. From Louis Antoine de Bougainville to Paul Gauguin, many adventurous spirits would seek out the island, as did Lucien Gauthier, who was so enchanted by Tahiti that in 1904 he decided to become a photographer. The collection of prints that he created over the next 17 years—particularly landscapes and portraits of young Tahitian women, both clothed and nude—speaks to the image of a peaceable paradise. Today he is recognized as the founder of a photographic icon, the vahine, or tropical beauty. This book situates his body of work in the history of photography in Tahiti from 1847 onward, and offers a selection of his most beautiful images, chosen from among 800 original negatives that are his surviving oeuvre.
