Cat Island: Diamonds and Rust is the latest addition to photographer Alessandro Sarno’s series of captivating coffee table books showcasing the islands of The Bahamas. With its stunning serenity and weathered natural grace, Cat Island has captured Sarno’s heart for many years. The special energy shines through brilliantly in the striking images and expressive portraits Sarno explores, as if you were walking beside him discovering the people and places he loves the most. Poems by local writers add new voices expressing their feelings towards their island. For an even more immersive experience, the book contains innovative QR codes linking to videos, sounds, and rake ’n scrape music that transports the reader even more deeply into island life. A spotlight section features the little-known neighboring Conception Island National Park—an exceptional land and sea sanctuary of unspoiled beauty, rarely seen. Sarno also provides some short notes giving more context and insight into moments within the images. A few interspersed quotes from biographies of Sidney Poitier—who grew up on Cat Island—echo timeless family island joys, struggles, and wisdom. This book is a multi-faceted tribute of affection and respect for the community of Cat Island—and for everyone in the world who holds this magical place dear, or plans to visit.
