The Photography of Idee Monterrey

When life gets blurry, Idee Monterrey adjusts our focus...

Based in the Canary Islands, gifted photographer, cinematographer, and documentarian, Idee Monterrey has graciously provided all of the photographic works featured in this issue.

Below, we present a specially curated selection of stunning photographs taken across the Canary Islands and in the Western Sahara region of North Africa.

Otherworldly Purple Tajinastes (Echium wildpretii) in La Palma, Canary Islands. Purple Tajinastes are one of the rarest plants in the world; they flower only a few days a year and only grow 2,000m above sea level. The plants can reach up to 3m (10 feet) in height. They are endemic to the island of La Palma. (This photograph was specially edited by Idee Monterrey, exclusively for Þ Literary Magazine).
