Tears of the Moon

"Tears of the Moon" is a documentary style photo book by Robert Verspui. In the book he visits Atlas pearl farm and provides an insiders look into the fascinating world of pearl farming. This is a book that is not so much about pearls, but about the people and relationships that center around the pearl farm. Beautifully shot and published, "Tears of the Moon" has found a place on my coffee table for the better part of a year now.

I'll save my readers a clumsy attempt to describe the images and photographic style found in the book and instead include a sample of some of my favorite shots below.
