Jeffrey Becom avoids the familiar tourist attractions, focusing instead on the houses of farmers and fishermen, exploring the details of an amazingly varied vernacular architecture. Jeffrey Becom is a traveler in search of color, and he has found a bounty of it in the intimate corners of Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, and Greece. Complementing the dazzling images is Becom's graceful and informative guide through the regions he has photographed.
