La Fontelina – Capri. One of the most exclusive beach clubs and restaurants in the whole of Italy, Capri’s Fontelina is a resting at the foot of the island’s legendary Faraglioni. It is also a historical place, where the Roman emperors residing on Capri once came to bathe.

Although more than 50 years have passed since they first opened their small sea-edge eatery, the Arcucci and Gargiulo families continue to run the Fontelina with the very same passion and enthusiasm. 

Fontelina is situated opposite Capri’s Faraglioni. You can reach the beach club on foot, via the little path which commences next to the Tragara viewing point. More on La Fontelina

Jin-Woo Prensena is a fine art photographer specializing in large-scale fine art and aerial photography. His focus on simplicity in large-scale displays is designed to trigger emotion and provide escape from the viewer’s daily routine. Prensena, who was raised in Germany and is of South Korean descent, has been living and working in Los Angeles for the last 20 years. In a previous guise as a top Hollywood handler, Jin-Woo began taking pictures while on location and quickly amassed a clientele among Hollywood celebrities and studio elites. His passion for shooting under challenging conditions has resulted in unique images such as breath-taking helicopter shots of icy riverbeds in the Icelandic highlands, glimpses into underwater shark cages located several days’ journey into the Pacific Ocean, and hidden moments deep in the deserts of Southern California. More on Jin-Woo Prensena
