At My Island Art we are uber excited today to formally announce a new photographer to our fold, and to now make his works available to the great customers at My Island Art. Many of you know him by his frequent Facebook posts, and his twitter updates, and like us you’ve probably wondered, just how does he do that? Well we’re not giving away any trade secrets, but we are thrilled to announce, available exclusively to My Island Art, select photo works from
William Torrillo, Old Mango Guide to the Islands!
We first became introduced to William in the same way that many of you have, by drooling every day at his stunning photographs posted on his Facebook Page Old Mango – Guide to The Islands. We’ve watched his posts and followed his tweets, and dreamed of one day adding his works to our gallery.
In 2012 while sitting at the Cruzan Beach Club at Secret Harbour, St. Thomas, I noticed a new photo from Old Mango had just been posted to his Facebook Page. What caught our attention was that the caption revealed that it was just taken only moments before, and at the exact same location we were now sitting. We quickly spun around trying to locate the identity of the now mysterious photographer.
At long last I finally narrowed down the short list of bar patrons, surely it couldn’t be that geriatric woman at a corner booth, and eased up to a table. “Are you William” I asked. Meeting William was a real treat for us. We sat for a brief time as he awaited the arrival of a business partner, and visited about our common love of the islands, and the lifestyle of a Island Boy. I loved hearing him speak about his love of the islands, and his passion for capturing its beauty.
William has a wonderful eye that captures the true island beauty and warm tranquil settings, each so life-like, that you can almost hear the surf at your feet. My Island Art is proud to be the exclusive outlet for this set of fine art images. Our offerings are printed with the lab exclusive Pearl Print process, that highlights the image saturation and lighting captured by the artist. Each is double-matted, and ready to frame and hang. Included in our selection are images from Cinnamon Bay, Cruz Bay, and Salomon Bay, St. John; Devil’s Bay Beach, Virgin Gorda; Long Bay Beach in Tortola; and the famous Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van Dyke. See the full collection of this catalog at Old Mango Pearl Photo Prints.
If you are a frequent visitor to the Virgin Islands,
or if you just love beautiful island settings, you will want
to add these images to complete your tropical decor.
We also offer a limited number of sets of Photo Art Cards.
These are packets of six (6) cards depicting some of his
most popular images. These cards are even suitable for framing.
These look awesome in a small grouping!
