The Purple Flavour Collection
For six years now, I have travelled every lavender season to the beautiful „Plateau de Valensole“ and spent a couple of weeks in this amazing region.
The Purple Flavour Collection is not only a collection. It is a part of my life.I have made many local friends, which gave me the opportunity to also shoot some of their hidden treasures, other than the mainstream touristic fields.
Every year when I return to Valensole it feels as if I am ought to be coming home.
For it is not only because of the locals which in the meantime became almost a part of my family.
Valensole is just like out of a fairy tale.
The beautiful purple fields, the scent of lavender, the buzzing of the bees and the sun of the south France. I just love it. Furthermore.. I just simply need it.
Additionally, it’s not only outstanding during the day. Even at night there is mostly an absolute clear sky, which lets me shoot our galaxy in its incredible beauty.
All the colors and the possibility to compose the fields in photography influenced my style in a way like nothing else.
It is the main reason why I became addicted to colors and leading lines.
And the flavour. Have you ever smelt this amazing purple flavour?
What is more is that when I’m back home and I open my luggage I can still smell the fragrance, and dream about the endless fields of Valensole.
I hope you can feel the purple flavour of the lavender in these pictures, and share this dream with me.
