Research visit to Petit Trianon at Château de Versailles 

In preparation for my photoshoot creation of Marie Antoinette, I visited her sanctuary, The Petit Trianon (13/11/2016), in order to capture a deeper understanding of a woman whose soul became lost in the politics that later claimed her life... The Petit Trianon is relatively simple with its understated elegance when compared to the 'pompadour' , excesses and rich wealth at Versailles.
