Overview

Photographer Karen T. Bartlett traveled extensively throughout this chain of tidal and barrier islands along the coasts of South Carolina, Georgia, and northern Florida to capture the timeless beauty and a lifestyle that incorporates the centuries-old traditions of the distinct Geechee/Gullah African-American culture that is unique throughout these islands. The arts, cuisine, historic architecture and plantations, as well as the local shellfish harvesting are reminiscent of an earlier age. Her photographic journey began off of the Charleston coast moving south from Sullivan's, Folly, and Edisto islands, to Kiawah, Hunting, Port Royal, Hilton Head, and Daufiskie islands along the coast of South Carolina and continued south to Tybee Island, the nature preserve and marshes of Melon Bluff, Sapelo, St. Simons, Little St. Simons, Jekyll, and Cumberland islands of Georgia and Amelia Island off of Florida. As is evident in Bartlett's photos, the sandy white beaches, abundant wildlife, and lush botanical spaces make these islands some of the most pristine and inspiring places on earth.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The tidal and barrier islands along the coasts of South Carolina, Georgia, and northern Florida possess a rare beauty and a unique cultural history. These offshore enclaves serve as sanctuaries for rich, distinct Geechee/Gullah African-American traditions. In Sea Islands of South Carolina, Georgia & Florida, these lush preserves and rural communities come alive in Karen T. Bartlett's sensitive photographs. A passport to an offshore American treasure.

    Being There-Karen Bartlett's book transmits the Sea Islands Experience

    Each summer of my life until I was 18 years old (and beyond) I traveled to the Sea Islands of Georgia. What I remember the most about the Sea Islands (especially Jekyll and St. Simons Island) was the immediate change in attitude that came over me the minute I arrived at one of them. Suddenly, all of the everyday stresses like school, traffic and other unpleasantries melted away...and all that was left was-the ocean.
    Jekyll was the place where I wrote my first poem-and the place where my life changed forever-over and over again. I still return to this day for this sort of inspiration and relaxation.

    If I tried to explain these beautiful places-and this phenomenal inner peace that they help bring about-I would have to show, not tell, someone by either taking them there or showing photographs to this person. Imagine how astounded I was when I first picked up Karen's book, and I was immediately transported back to those warm, sunny and peaceful days. She did more than accurately capture the morning light found here and the serenity of dusk....she captured the very spirit of the coast. In these pages you will smell the salt in the air-hear the lapping of the waves on the shore-and feel the ocean breezes.

    If you can't afford a vacation right now-buy this book and keep it handy for an instant getaway! If you don't know about the Sea Islands yet then you have a marvelous education awaiting you in this book-buy it now! Better yet-buy it for many others so that they can see what this beautiful coastline has to offer.

    Perhaps the most priceless aspect of this book is that it captures an endless moment in time. I hope that this area always retains its peace and charm, and that the islands (especially Jekyll) remains accessible not only to those with means-but everyday people as well. Karen's book shows us not only what these places were and are, but what they always should be.

    Bravo, Karen for capturing a precious part of America's landscape so well.
