To celebrate the John Batho exhibition Deauville, Terre Bleue is publishing the book Plage de Couleurs by the photographer, born in Normandy in 1939. Batho devoted himself to photography in his early twenties. At a time when black and white photography reigned, he turned to color and its ability to take the senses by surprise. Plage de Couleurs immerses the reader into this colorful and moving world. Shot in the same place at the same time, these photographs capture these beaches as time goes on.
