UNESCO site Hanifaru in the Maldives is a rugby pitch of water in an ancient atoll where Manta Rays congregate yearly to feed in the plankton rich waters. Like a bowl in the ocean just a few dozen meters deep, this magic spot attracts nature enthusiasts hoping to witness a once in a lifetime ballet of up to 150 feeding Mantas.

    Gregory Burns’ passion for art began as a boy in Paris where he painted bottles of Beaujolais and slices of French bread. During a freshman figure drawing class Gregory discovered a passion for painting the nude. He slipped into Asia in 1984, where he studied Chinese brush painting and calligraphy with local masters in Taiwan and China. With broken mandarin and paintbrushes he embarked on a 16-month backpacking trip overland through China, Tibet, Nepal, India and Pakistan focusing on the ancient sacred sites of the region. Since completing his postgraduate degree in fine arts in 1999, the intrepid traveller continues to cast a wide net and pull in a diverse collection of colours and imagery from which he tries to inspire himself and others to live a big life with purpose.
