Easter island by Brian Anderson

Brian Anderson, photographer, adventurer & lecturer, has captured nature, travel and landscape images from trips to 60+ countries. He has presented to HU3A on several occasions and never failed to amaze and enthral.

‘Easter Island – Navel of the Earth’ Easter Island is one of the world’s most remote inhabited islands, located in the Pacific, over 2000 miles west of Chile in South America. Ever since the island was discovered by the outside world on Easter Sunday in 1772, it has generated countless myths and theories about its people and the mysterious Moai, the ‘tall, monstrous statues’ – echoes of a tough and turbulent past. Illustrated with stunning images from his trip to Easter Island, Brian describes the early Polynesian settlers and the purpose of their enigmatic statues, plus the island’s wildlife and landscapes.
