Interweaves literary quotes from Zola, Colette, and Camus into descriptive literary passages and photographs celebrating the French province
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Provence enjoys countless volumes dedicated to its beauty and traditions. Frequently photographed and greatly celebrated, Provence is once again illuminated in a handsome tribute, this time by husband-and-wife photographers, with sparkling text by French journalist Marie-Ange Guillaume. The result is a fascinating portrait of the area, a place with haunting stillness. Guillaume weaves quotes from Zola, Colette, Camus, and other notable literary and artistic figures into her own lyrical descriptive passages. Many of these photographs verge on the abstract, but each succeeds in conveying the intimate knowledge of its creators. Francophiles of all stripes will savor this ode to France's most celebrated province. Alice JoyceReview:
