Windows of Nice (November 2013)
The natural beauty of Nice, France – the sun, beaches, and blue seas – made it a prime destination for the English upper class in the middle of the 18th century seeking relaxation. More recently it became a center of inspiration for outstanding painters like Chagall, Matisse, and Arman. Today, it attracts millions of tourists every year from all over the world.
The eclectic windows of Nice are a hidden treasure. Reflecting numerous styles throughout the ages, in old and new buildings, the windows demonstrate Nice’s unique fusion of past and present. The images in this book give a glimpse of what there is to be discovered. All pictures were taken in October 2013.
Windows III (December 2011)
Although windows exist to let external light illuminate the interior of a building, and to allow its occupant to maintain some contact with the outdoors, they are an architectural expression and the most important ornament of any building’s exterior. Almost anywhere in the world, windows are part of the national and local artistic expression. This book captures some of that expression. The pictures were taken in Seattle (USA); Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Ceasarea (Israel); and Roumirou, Sain-Felix-Luragais, Soreze, Toulouse and Carcassonne (France). Some of the individual images can be find here.
