Photographing Literary Landscapes: Marcel Proust's France

The scenes depicted by Proust in the novel captivate his readers so much that many travel to visit the places that inspired him. I admire a writer’s ability to see a real object or place and make it visible to others through words. By using photography, I can return to the location that inspired the writer and capture the same landscapes as they continue to exist in time. The resulting juxtaposition of reality and art is a phenomenon that I find endlessly fascinating.  Photographs by Nicolas Drogoul.
