Percé Tappin



The unique beauty and character of the Caribbean islands, especially Barbados, were captured forever in the works of pioneering photographer Percé Tappin.
Among the first to establish a photo studio in modern Bridgetown in the 1950’s, he quickly made a lasting name for himself as a professional photographer from his studio on Swan Street. His unerring eye, board scope and dazzling creativity lend testimony to the fact that many of his photographs remain in his private, highly prized collection to this day.
The Percé Tappin Award for Photography is presented for the entry which captures beauty, life, form and technique with excellence.
