Cargados Carajos, or Saint Brandon as it is otherwise known, is an archipelago comprising a number of sand banks, shoals and islets. It is a group of outer islands belonging to Mauritius and located in the Indian Ocean. It is part of the Mascerene Islands. There is a small transient population, mostly fisherman. The majority of the population live on Île Raphael.

This black and white chart looks cool and contemporary. As in portrait photography, the absence of colour can eliminate distraction and keep the eye focussed on what is relevant. In this case, attention is drawn to the 7 layers of 3D relief work. The monochrome theme continues in the choice of mount and frame.
