The 'Our Malta' Book
To photograph a holiday home in Malta and the surrounding area where the owner grew up. They wanted to capture the exquisite details in their home to reflect the unique history of the 300 year-old farm house with some parts as old as 650 years. The owner requested that the finished photographs were collated into a bespoke handcrafted book which could be passed onto future generations.
Stella visited the holiday home and surrounding area to craft a proposal, paying special attention to the landmarks where the owner spent much of his childhood. All the photography had to take place over a week-long period, with the production of the book in the following month.
Stella presented a selection of her edited images to the owner to allow him to choose his favourites. She then collaborated with the designer, book printers and other craftsmen to create a perfect finish. Stella paid particular attention to the finer details which included selecting the correct shade of cloth for the cover to match the stone work of the farmhouse.
