Barbra Ellison tells The Rickie Report, “In 2013, I traveled to France with my sister to honor my husband Michael, by visiting some of the areas that he lived as a child. During the journey, I documented churches, abbeys and neighborhoods of northern France, enjoying the time with my sister, as well as observing the culture and beauty of the countryside”.

The selection of images from France cover three specific areas – Paris, and the regions of Burgundy and Loire, “Three Faces of France”. These images were processed and presented in three different ways, through a variety of mediums. The first series consists of scenes enhanced by the choice of Japanese paper, printed to create a softness through the torn edges and fibers that run through the scene. Traveling to the second group, the images were printed in black and white on French watercolor paper, and then hand colored with pastels to create the feeling of years gone by, reminders of the turn of the century chalk paintings. The final group consists of images that were printed on hand painted backgrounds of gold. All three groups of images were hand torn and floated on matching backdrops to maintain the simplicity of the images.
