A few years ago, Jonna and Marcie Stone went to the south of France to teach a class with Gwen Gibson, in Gwen’s lovely and amazing home studio in Dufort. While they were teaching, I prowled the countryside with my camera, listening to the audio version of Tracy Chevalier’s wonderful ‘The Lady and the Unicorn,’ a story of medieval France and scoping out places to take Jonna. Couldn’t have been more perfect.
Jonna and I visited a lot of grand churches and cathedrals during the visit. But in the tiny church of St. Andre in the “book village” of Montolieu, I came across the most primitive, yet evocative crucifixion I’d ever experienced.
