About the Author

Jamie Beck took her first photograph at the age of thirteen and soon after began earning her living as a professional photographer. By twenty-eight, she opened her own commercial photographic studio in lower Manhattan. Jamie has shot campaigns and editorials for some of the world's most famous brands, including Chanel, Donna Karan, Nike, Oscar de la Renta, Google, Samsung, and Microsoft. Her work has appeared under the mastheads of Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, on Netflix, and in digital ad displays for Disney. She has been commissioned by luxury brands such as Chopard, Cartier, and Volvo and has twice been named by Adweek magazine as one of the industry's top 100 creatives, with numerous features written about her body of work in Communication Arts, WWD, and Time. With her camera never leaving her side, Jamie has spent almost twenty-five years traveling the world, one photographic frame at a time. In 2016, she took what was to be a one-year sabbatical to create a personal body of work in the South of France, which changed the entire course of her life, one that blossomed into a career as an art photographer and delivered her a French-born baby girl named Eloise. Jamie is the author of the New York Times bestselling An American in Provence. She lives in Provence with her husband and daughter. Follow her on Instagram


"Jamie's lush floral photography captures the essence of the natural beauty of Provence, but her images also nod reverentially to the art historical cannon, with her decadent Dutch Renaissance-style still lifes and tableaux that animate beloved paintings like Monet's famous Poppy Field.
