An Escape To The Maldives

We recently had the pleasure of visiting the Maldives, where we captured the tropical archipelago’s natural beauty and local street life.

With the resort island of Kurumba in the North Malé Atoll as a base, filmmaker Björn Baasner and photographer Stefan Haehnel turned their lenses to the awe-inspiring beauty of the tropical atolls, as well as locals in the course of their daily lives at the fish market in Malé, the country’s capital. From pristine white beaches and lush coconut palms to denizens at work and play, the following footage and photo series capture the tropical island bathed in delicate, ethereal light.
