Exploring Cathar Country and the Pyrenees-Orientales (April 28 – May 7, 2018)

A Photographic Journey with Harold Davis

What and Where: In the twelfth century in the part of the world that is today southwestern France, a new set of religious beliefs coalesced and came to be known as the Cathar heresy. The Cathars believed in a supreme being and god of light, utterly unconcerned with matters of this world, and in a direct individual interaction with this god with no need for inter-mediation by the hierarchy of an established religion.

Wild, craggy peaks and deep canyon valleys dominate the Pyrénées-Orientales in scenery somewhat reminiscent of parts of the American West. The Pyrénées-Orientales and old Languedoc is a region where the wildness of the landscape and the flavor of Spanish cuisine mingles with traditional French culture to create a unique and very special world apart. 

While the primary emphasis of this journey will be photography, we’ll also take the time to learn more about Catharite beliefs, enjoy the unique culture, wild scenery, and cuisine of Cathar Country and the Pyrénées-Orientales.

The dates for this small-group tour  are April 28 to May 7, 2018. Click here for more information, and here for the Reservation Form. We’ve heard quite a bit of excitement about exploring Cathar Country and the Pyrénées-Orientales with Harold, so this group will fill quickly. Note that an early-bird discount applies until September 15, 2017.

Please consider joining me for the photographic adventure of a lifetime!
