Thank you very much Elizabeth Avedon for the great coverage of The Photo Master Retreat I am organizing.

I dreamt of creating this new kind of gathering with a communal and creative atmosphere where fellow photographers will be ‘mentored’ by key professionals -Elisabeth Biondi and Lyle Rexer- as well as enrich each other.

I also imagined a place where 14 passionate photographers would safely and productively retire for a week, with time on their side to concentrate on their work and process and contemplate future possibilities.

My family house La Bastide d’Esparon is the perfect haven for a retreat. It has been my creative refuge for the past 30 years, which I wanted to share. It has the best views in the world. You are between sky and mountain.

Looking forward to this retreat. Don't forget to send your applications before January 6, 2014.

Martine, the 14 participants chosen are very lucky to attend this exceptional Retreat and coming at the end of nearby Rencontres d’Arles Photo Festival makes it even more enticing!
