Red Balcony with Blue Shutters, Antibes, France
Urban landscape photograph of a red balcony, blue shutters, and ochre wall in the medieval part of town in Antibes, France. The picture was made down the street from Picasso’s home. The area exudes a feel of broken and fractured space reminiscent of the master’s cubist vision. The shadows further distort and twist the plumb of the space as the morning sunlight streams through the street at a slant. Accentuated by the early morning Côte d’Azur light, warm colors predominate and are brightened by the pale blues of the shutters and diminutive doors in the center of the image.
