For the love of provence
When bestselling photographer Rachael Hale McKenna embarked on a new life in France, it was inevitable that she would turn her talents to capturing the beauty of the world around her.
Evoking a gentle change of pace, Rachael's imagery immerses us in French daily life: the scenery and unique light that inspired a generation of artists; the ancient villages and fortified towns; the beaches of the glittering Cote d'Azur that draw crowds of tourists; the taste of fresh Mediterranean-inspired cuisine that bursts like summer in the mouth, washed down with a pale and blushing rose; a leisurely game of boules enjoyed over a glass of pastis in the cool of a summer evening. Even the ever-present cats and dogs exude a languid Provencal outlook on the world.
Illuminated with text by Peter Mayle, author of the bestselling A Year in Provence and A Good Year, For the Love of Provence is at heart a joie de vivre (a joyous celebration) of this historic province of southeastern France that has captivated artists, writers, lovers, and travelers for generations.
