Provence exerts a powerful pull, and time and again, photographers and artists are drawn to the heart of France, discovering some new
enchantment every time. Sometimes it’s traditional, like a French market in Aix, or a fountain in Arles, or the romanticised and much-loved
bridge in Avignon, or the lavender scents at Sénanque Abbey and the Valensole Plateau; but fashionable contemporary architecture is waiting
to be explored as well; at its best in the fabulous modern MuCEM in Marseille. With work from Jordan Banks,
and Carlo Irek,
Provence is one of the reasons we love France.
