Up until then, tennis was traditionally played on grass but due to the scorching heat, the brothers decided to use clay from a local pottery house in Valaruis to help with the quality of the courts to improve play.

Photography in Focus – James Robinson Taylor

I first came to Cannes in 1996; I was looking for a good gathering of classic yachts and my colleague and mentor Bert Richner suggested I give it a go. It was still the analogue era and I worked out of my van, bunk and laboratory.

We were hard core photographers, developing our own film in our vans. I could process about twelve to sixteen rolls a …
