“Not yet noon, and the temperature is in the mid-eighties and rising. Summer has set in. Fresh figs for breakfast, warm from the sun. Dogs asleep in the shade.”
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 rosé.
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 so captivated artists, writers, lovers, and travelers for generations.
