This gallery has photos I shot at Claude Monet’s gardens in Giverny. Giverny is a small village 50 miles outside of Paris and offers a peaceful contrast to the urban Parisian atmosphere. Monet is one of my favorite artists and I was truly inspired by my visit to the place where he spent the last 40 years of his life. Below are elements of Monet’s garden, his home, and the commune explored with my tour mate Elizabeth.
