Photographer following the trail of famous artists to the small Catalonian fishing town of Cadaques, Spain

Cadaques is a beautiful Catalonian fishing town nestled on the edge of the Cap de Creus Peninsula where the Pyrenees meet the sea. It is a popular destination in summer when the bustle of summer visitors wander around the white washed labyrinth of streets and houses basking in the magical light. Out of season when they have departed then time stands still. It is a place to relax, fish, swim, paint and eat. An artists and poets paradise, some of it's famous visitors included Dali, Picasso, MirĂ³, and Duchamp who were no doubt attracted by it's beautiful light and vivid colours reflecting on the many archways, twisted cobbled pathways and inviting turquoise sea.
