Photographer, Paul Reiffer comments: “I visit remote, or impossible to reach locations to capture some of the shots being exhibited in pr @ hf, it therefore felt very natural to showcase these images in an equally incredible and remote location. I’ve visited and photographed the Maldives for many years and find it to be one of the most unique places on the globe.”
