TOLOCHENAZ: The Swiss Village and Home of Audrey Hepburn

I anticipated this journey to Switzerland eight months in advance and had been planning to write a book. At the last week before departing, it dawned on me that I wanted to do a photographic document in real time. On day one, I started photographing immediately. This is a photograph tour venturing from Morges to Tolochenaz. This starts with me entering the village on foot from the top of Route de Lully on to the interior of town toward the village's end. It took twenty-eight days to write and photograph, including the time spent on the airplane. This book was written to depict the village of Tolochenaz in real time on the 25th year, and birthday, of Audrey's passing, on May 4, 2018. The photos and documents I have written are for anyone who has an interest in the tiny village as well as anyone who is unable to travel but wishes to see the village in most of its entirety.

I wanted to honor the village of Tolochenaz for what it really is, a beautiful place, with all its famous landmarks and more! This is for the eye to behold in anyone's imagination. So, take a virtual tour of my twenty-eight-day journey by book that will last a lifetime. Tolochenaz is my favored place to be any day!
