New York Times bestselling author and award-winning photographer Jamie Beck displays her stunning photography of the flowers of Southern France in this beautiful gift book.

When acclaimed and award-winning photographer Jamie Beck set out for a one-year getaway in the French countryside, she didn’t expect it to change her life forever. She’s spent several years chronicling her life in Provence ever since. During her time, she gave birth to her daughter and accumulated hundreds of thousands of followers on social media for her exquisite photography.

In Beck’s first book, the New York Times bestselling An American in Provence, you got a glimpse into her world in beautiful words and pictures. Now, The Flowers of Provence immerses them in lush photography of her most beloved subjects. In addition to must-see stunning photography, 90% of which has never been published in a book before, Beck includes thoughts about what inspires her to create such incredible works of art and tips for cutting and preserving flowers. The Flowers of Provence is sure to delight long-time fans, armchair travelers, photography connoisseurs, and of course, anyone who appreciates the natural beauty of flowers.
Jamie Beck took her first photograph at the age of thirteen and soon after began earning her living as a professional photographer. By twenty-eight, she opened her own commercial photographic studio in lower Manhattan. Jamie has shot campaigns and editorials for some of the world’s most famous brands, including Chanel, Donna Karan, Nike, Oscar de la Renta, Google, Samsung, and Microsoft. Her work has appeared under the mastheads of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, on Netflix, and in digital ad displays for Disney. She has been commissioned by luxury brands such as Chopard, Cartier, and Volvo and has twice been named by Adweek magazine as one of the industry’s top 100 creatives, with numerous features written about her body of work in Communication ArtsWWD, and Time. With her camera never leaving her side, Jamie has spent almost twenty-five years traveling the world, one photographic frame at a time. In 2016, she took what was to be a one-year sabbatical to create a personal body of work in the South of France, which changed the entire course of her life, one that blossomed into a career as an art photographer and delivered her a French-born baby girl named Eloise. Jamie is the author of the New York Times bestselling An American in Provence. She lives in Provence with her husband and daughter. Follow her on Instagram @JamieBeck.co.
