Zone du Silence

Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, Côte D'Azur, January 2009, J Bowring

Beside the Mediterranean, a 'found' space. Down a bank, past the sign advising passage privé, a trespass into silence. Descending into a place of slowness, detachment from a real world somewhere else. The introspection of the declared zone du silence is palpable, revealing a certain force's presence on this site. The small, circular terrace hangs like a balcony suspended into the space of the sea, a monk's cell, en plein air.
