This image depicts the two lighthouses that delimitate the entrance of the Grand Harbour of Valletta, Malta (il-Port il-Kbir, in Maltese). This is a natural harbour located east of Valletta and has been used since the Phoenician times. Throughout history, it has been one of the most important harbours of the Mediterranean Sea since it was the base for the Knights of Saint John and, after their departure, a major mediterranean base for the British up to the independence of Malta.

Photographer: Sébastien Beun (Thuin, Belgium) Registered Photographer
Sébastien Beun is a Belgian based amateur photographer born in 1981. He came into photography at the age of 12. Sébastien bought his first single lens reflex and made his first attempts to develop black and white negatives and prints after having discovered his father’s old material in the attic. Few years later he bought more modern dark room material, and over the course of time moved into digital photography eventually. Today he takes digital photographs of everything that touches him. He keeps his dark room material in his attic, as he believes one day he can show how that works to his own son.
