A bit late with this one, but back in April of 2018 I was commissioned to photograph the renowned establishment, Hotel du Cap, Eden Roc in Antibes, France. The hotel is often associated with celebrities and was a popular and iconic destination for those escaping to the sun for many years, becoming particularly famous in the 50s and 60s. It’s a fascinating establishment with a rich and colourful history. Being granted access to do a behind the scenes piece was a real privilege, but also obviously came with it’s own challenges.
The story, for Gentlemans Journal, was designed to reveal a day in the life of and as such we photographed everyone from cleaners to gardeners, pool boys and barmen. We had a limited window and the weather was not with us on the first day – which always adds a little pressure on these type of shoots. Thankfully we had windows of sunlight had I made the most of getting up at dawn every day to make the most f my time there. The following images over a little vignette into one of Europes most famous hotels. You can see more for this story on the website here.
