Sunlit St. John

Sunlit Saint John is a project directed by St. Thomas native Eric Zucker. After living more than half his life in St. John, Zucker was inspired to action as St. John is losing its “sought-after, precious status.”

Over a week ago, videos began to pop up on social media with a simple, yet shocking message — the version of St. John that ancestral natives once knew is being erased at an alarming rate.

The videos are hosted on a barebones website,, that gives no indication of who is behind the project — an intentional move, said Eric Zucker, a director who was born and raised on St. Thomas and has lived on St. John for more than half his life.
