Le Mont St Michel and it's baie are dramatic, stunningly beautiful and full of mystery.
Le Mont St Michel, an island off the coast of Normandy that was home to a Benedictine Monastery. Today, friars and sisters from "Les Fraternités Monastiques de Jerusalem" ensure a spiritual presence.
I have been fascinated by Le Mont St Michel for over 20 years and I have always wanted to create a body of work (a collection of photographs) that captured my intrigue with and perception of this unique place. The "art" photographs in this book were taken over a five year period and I hope they capture some of the "essence" of this UNESCO world heritage site.
What will the book look like?
It will be full of beautiful photographs of the Mont St Michel: some broad landscapes, but also images showing the more intimate corners of the monastery. It will be produced to the highest professional standards. There are 80 pages, with 48 plates printed in black and white and one full colour image on carefully selected matt coated paper to bring out the best tonal range of each photograph.
There are two editions: a limited edition, which is casebound, (with laminated dust jacket), signed and numbered that comes in a clamshell box complete with a limited edition print.
The trade edition. This is printed to the same high standard but is not numbered. It is casebound with laminated dust jacket.
To launch of this book has been delayed. An update will be posted on this website as soon as a new release date is known.
