A German photographer is pursuing his love of intricate mosaics from Europe's colorful halls into the heart of the Caribbean in a bid to showcase some of the world's most captivating ceramic floors.
A pair of feet planted firmly on a mosaic in Paris, Venice, Barcelona, then London: these are just a few of the locations depicted in the photo series created by globe-trotting Sebastian Erras as he travels around the world in pursuit of beautiful floor tiles.
This is one of the first times the art enthusiast has taken his passions outside the European continent to Latin America and the Caribbean, specifically to the tropical regions of Cuba and Trinidad. The results are stunning.
Instagram followers chanced upon a pair of dragon slippers standing on a square of ruby red roses encircled by waves of turquoise and a cap of gold.
The next photo depicts the same slippers on a bed of tropical yellow blooms, surrounded by white and green flowers. Other shots show the artists posing in different footwear as he plays with color contrasts and similar designs to create a deeper dynamic.
"Havana has some incredibly beautiful tile floors, but they are a bit more difficult to spot compared to the other cities in Cuba," the artist explains on Instagram.
"The main reason being that most of the apartments are situated on the first or second floor and it's hard the get a peek inside from the street."
According to Erras' personal website, he first discovered his passion for photography, travel and culture while on a trip to the Maasai Mara game reserve in Kenya, Africa.
Since then, he has worked extensively photographing nature and wildlife, the results of which have been featured in various magazines.
