Claudius Schulze - Support my Socotra Book!

It is over five years ago, that my interest in the very isle Socotra was ignited and almost one year, since I first set foot on it. In the mean time, I explored Socotra and the concept «island», spent over seven weeks worth of shooting on the island, got countless fleabites, took almost 20 000 pictures, walked my feet sore more than once, ruined two lenses and almost my knees, and spent all my savings. Now, after endless months of editing, the writing of many thousand words of text, and production of four dummies and one exhibition, I am at the point that I can proudly say: Yes! I am there; I have a book that is worth standing in one shelf with other great and famous volumes.
