La Belle France – Artist’s Statement –
Discovering the landscape and architecture of France is pure enjoyment. This series of images celebrates a country that has evolved and matured into a realm of rich textures and shapes. While my other work is more contemplative, when photographing in France, I am steeped in the romantic sense of place.
Some of this series of photographs I shot in the Dordogne River Valley in southwestern France over a period of several years. My love for the French countryside and appreciation for the sense of style that orders the landscape and architecture are apparent in these images.
And the cities have their own beauty and interest for me… especially Paris and Lyon…
These images are the expression of my love affair with a beautiful country, fabulous food and wine, and warm and friendly people.
