For this first episode of series two, I chatted with the German writer Stephanie Schulz, a long-term resident of Mallorca. Stephanie and her British author and photographer friend, Mark Julian Edwards, worked collaboratively to create the recently published book Faces of Mallorca, published in four languages by Triangle Books of Barcelona.
The sumptuous book features Mallorcan people from all walks of island life - their stories told in words and images by Stephanie and Mark. It's been endorsed by some prominent people, including Andreu Serra, Tourism Minister for Mallorca, and Tony Wheeler, founder of The Lonely Planet guides.
Stephanie reveals how the project came about, how the collaboration worked, some of the Mallorcans she interviewed for the book, and what's next for her and her creative friend, Mark.

Faces of Mallorca is also on Facebook & Instagram. The book is available internationally from Amazon and most bookstores in Mallorca.
