Marseille

I spent New Year in Marseille. As we arrived, we emerged from the subway to the smell of fish from the dockside and a view of inverted pedestrians reflected in Norman Foster’s polished steel canopy, part of the regeneration of the old port.

 

This print encompasses all my sensations and emotions from the city — the people in the street, the sense of danger in its history, the forts at the entrance to the old port, a womans’s face painted full height on a building, the 1920s art deco of the Hôtel Péron, bus-stop adverts, the Mucem museum of Mediterranean culture enclosed by a concrete filigree which melds the modern building into the environment, the view of the sea, the darkness of the night sky.
