This project is about a small village in Burgundy, France – the village where my husband’s parents met when they were both 5 years old. I’ve been coming to this town, a place of family reunions, every summer for the last 20 years. I’m always fascinated by how it appears to be largely untouched by time. This is a village of stone houses, many dating back several hundred years, with a population of 192 people. There is no commerce here, not one single shop.
