How about a photographic portfolio full of glossy stills, shiny sun-dappled limbs and bright green foliage to put your holiday pics to shame? Paris-based photographer Fred Lahache’s new series Mediterraneo captures all of the elements of two weeks on a Mediterranean beach that my own Kodak shots fail to demonstrate, dusted with sand and dribbled with ice cream as they are. Cobalt blue tiles, a boat such a perfect shade of turquoise that it almost looks like a carefully placed prop and an octopus holding hands with a holiday-goer; Fred’s eye for colour is second to none, and his stylishly characteristic images have us longing for August and a heatwave on a sunny shore.
