Jessica Tremp


In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.  – Albert Camus

The axis has tilted, the sun is heading south and the light is stretching towards the night. The long hot summer is nearly upon us. Whether it is being on the move, in the pool, or sweating it out in a shaded room our feature artists capture the distinctive moods of Summer. Exhilarating, exhausting, languorous, liberating and invincible.
