Les jardins de Versailles vus par Hervé Ternisien

Hervé Ternisien
Last Saturday, VDP had the great pleasure of attending a conference by Hervé Ternisien, photographer extraordinaire, who came to talk about the year he spent in the gardens and park of Versailles palace, in all kinds of weather, to photograph their beauty through the seasons. He spoke so passionately that it was a pure delight! Do yourself a favour and follow this link to his website to enjoy some of his absolutely stunning photographs of the palace garden and parks. They are so gorgeous that a bilingual French-English book has just been released which would make a beautiful Christmas gift for any Versailles lover! Though apparently not yet available on Amazon.com, it is purchasable on Amazon.co.uk and on the palace's online shop!

Samedi dernier, VDP a eu l'immense plaisir d'assister à la conférence du photographe Hervé Ternisien, venu à Versailles à l'invitation du groupe Facebook "tu sais que tu viens de Versailles quand... " pour parler de l'année (et même plus) qu'il a passée dans les jardins et le parc du château par tous temps, pour immortaliser leur beauté au travers des saisons. La joie et la passion se dégageaient de son propos, ce fut un moment délicieux de partage et de découverte d'anecdotes ! Faites-vous plaisir et suivez ce lien vers son site web pour voir ses photos divines ! Comme elles sont tellement sensationnelles, un livre vient de paraître aux éditions Albin Michel, qui ferait un merveilleux cadeau de Noël pour tous les amoureux de Versailles ! Préfacé par Catherine Pégard, il est disponible en librairie (et notamment, pour les versaillais, au Potager du Livre), ici sur Amazon et sur la boutique en ligne du château !

Wow! Thanks for the link - he is a master. Some of his photos make the statuary come to life - almost! I can see why attending this conference would be a "great pleasure."
