Photographer: Christian Marcel (see profile)
Competition: Competition 16
Category: Still Life
Location: Solliès-Pont, Provence, France


The peaches in this still life evoke youth and freshness, through the texture and colour of their skin. The closed bottle contains the pleasure of life, as yet untasted. The warm tones in the picture represent the summer heat and the temptation. The open jar on its side symbolises that once the pleasures of life have been consumed, there will remain a void which must be filled.
