AMAN WORLD
September 18, 2013

It has been more than a year now since I was assigned the task of creating a library of images and films for the incredible AMAN luxury resort brand. Cruising the globe to cover the 27 + properties, from Europe to Asia, through the Caribbean and the US, A dream like assignment to work in an environment so full of grace, beauty and close to aesthetic perfection.

Do I have a favorite? Probably Amanjiwo in Central java, Indonesia. But all the resorts are so beautiful.

Below are images of the brand new Aman in Venice just opened in June 2013.
