Stop the presses! I am taking time out from the series in the Luberon because I have some very exciting news. This month's National Geographic France is on the newsstands and features the work of my honey, Remi Benali.
Those of you that have been reading for a while know that Remi has been assigned to cover the excavation and renovation of an intact Roman boat right here in Arles. As I have mentioned previously, the story will be divided into three sections in France and the world-wide editions will present the complete version in 2014.
This is an enormous step forward for Remi as it has been the dream of his career to work with the National Geographic. It was very exciting for us to see his name credited along with Patrick Landmann as well as Teddy Seguin and Lionel Roux for the underwater photography. Eight out of the twelve photographs presented are Remi's and from here on out, he will be covering the story on his own.
This will give you a little preview of the dynamic energy in the photographs. For the rest, well, those of you in France can always stop by your local press to pick up a copy. On the magazine's website, there is a teaser video about this fascinating subject: National Geographic France website. Alas, it is French but interesting enough for those that don't speak the language to understand.
Bravo, my love! I am so proud of you.
