Present at a book launch for Claude Pavards most recent book, “Seychelles Love Story,” were the Minister for Tourism, Civil Aviation, Ports and Marine, Maurice Loustau-Lalanne; Chief Executive of the Seychelles Tourism Board, Sherin Francis; and the Deputy Chief Executive, Jenifer Sinon; as well as friends of Mr. Pavard in Seychelles.

Seychelles has once again inspired well-known photographer and documentary film producer, Claude Pavard, to write his newest book. It was launched at the Eden Bleu Hotel last Friday.


Other books published by Mr. Pavard are “Seychelles: A Bird’s Eye View,” “Seychelles from One Island to Another,” and “The Seychelles Archipelago.”

During the launch, those who were present were given an overview of how this new publication became a reality, and Mr. Pavard later signed copies of his book.

“Seychelles Love Story” depicts the true portrait of various aspects of life on the islands long ago and that are nowadays not too common. These include coconut and guano harvesting on the outer islands.

Mr. Pavard said it has taken him around two years to work on the book and finally launch it. He added that the idea was to portray what he has seen and experienced in Seychelles during the last four decades.

Speaking at the launch, Minister Loustau-Lalanne said “Seychelles Love Story” retraces good souvenirs of our islands and portrays the story of Aldabra in it.


Minister Loustau-Lalanne thanked Mr. Pavard for his publications which do reveal the uniqueness and beauty of the archipelago.

“Seychelles Love Story” is already on sale in various bookshops across the country.
