Provence in Winter

After hardly any winter to speak of, the mimosas had started blosoming in Collobrières about six weeks ahead of time. Let us hope they survive the sudden relapse into the season we had expected to be over. (Click on the images to enlarge)

Enfants !



While making a portrait it is tempting to not just show the person in front of you but also the person he or she may have been and may become. With children, the focus is naturally more on what kind of person they may become or would like to become. No problem with girls: They like to project themselves into the future as soon as adolescence begins. Which is more and more early, it seems.

A l'occasion du Printemps des Arts de Collobrières, organisé par l'Association des Artistes et Créateurs de Collobrières (AACC), j'installerai mon studio de portrait dans la Salle des Association, à coté de la Mairie.
Venez seul, en famille ou entre amis, pour vous faire photographier, sans engagement et sans obligation d'acheter les photos.
Vous trouvez que vous n'êtes pas photogénique ? Réfléchissez à cette définition : "On est photogénique quand on est prêt de donner de soi."

La photo ci-dessus montre une femme de caractère et un original de notre village. Mon hommage à Betsy. (Elisabeth Aguettant ; cliquer sur l'image pour l'agrandir)

Printemps enfin - Spring at Last - Endlich Frühling

Notre prunier, mars 2009

Six weeks after the mimosas flowering in Bormes les Mimosas, spring is finally arriving in the valleys beyond the coast line. It came about a week later than last year, and the blossoming is not quite as abundant this year.
The image above is of our mirabelle tree. It has lost a few branches in storms and seems to have produced a ton of fruit last year in order to ensure procreation. Luckily it survived both storms and over-abundant fruit production (leading to the loss of more branches), but is flowering with a lot more parsimony this year

Driving, cycling, and hiking through the countryside of the Var, you often see trees planted next to sheds in the fields (and next to houses, of course). Some of these sheds are very small, most of them very old, and one wonders why it should be so important to have big trees so close to them, trees that sometimes seem to crush the sheds.

Moving to Provence is a challenge:

Most French people think that you are retiring. Well I am not, and given the state of retirement finances in France and in Germany, I will probably never be able to retire. I hope my customers and prospects don't think I am retired, and they don't need to call upon me any more!
The people in the south suspect, that if you are not retired, you will not live here during the whole year. Probably thinking « no need to integrate these people », they won't be around most of the time.

Worse still: How do you move from a project of rather abstract photography at La Défense to the postcard-landscapes of Provence, photographed a million times before you get there? Or how do you write about your experience without subconsciously plagiarising Marcel Pagnol or Peter Mayle?
