Photographer's Note

Valbonne is a commune near Nice in the Alpes-Maritimes department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in south-eastern France. Valbonne means 'the good valley' in Provençal and translates to Vaubona in Occitan.

This village was constructed in 1519 with the aim to repopulate a region that had been ravaged by the plague since 1351. It was built along the lines of a Roman encampment.
