15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Mobile
Pont du Gard, France

In 2015, I took a six-month sabbatical to travel through Europe, learn French, and study art and history. I stayed in 12 countries as far ranging as Ireland, Finland, Greece, and Spain. In March of that year, I was fortunate enough to be an Artist In Residence at Galerie Huit in Arles, France. On one of my outings, I ventured north towards Avignon and Nimes, to the site of the Roman aqueduct at Pont du Gard. As a history lover, I was thrilled to see the site, and as an artist, I soaked in its lasting aesthetics and ingenuity.
