Giverny lies on the bank of the River Seine in Normandy, close to the town of Vernon. Were it not for the arrival of the renowned Impressionist painter Claude Monet in 1883, the village might have remained a quiet provincial backwater. The long years Monet spent at his house in Giverny would turn it into a place of artistic pilgrimage, even in his lifetime. He settled here with his companion Alice Hoschedé and their respective children, and lived here until his death in 1926.


In the photographs of the famous lilly pond I have tried to recreate the colour palette of Monet with its purples, blues and greens as a tribute the the great artist. Leica M240 with 28mm lens.
