Photographer's Note

"Cannes - is a French commune in the agglomeration community of Cannes Pays de Lérins located in the department Alpes-Maritimes, in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, on the Côte d'Azur of which it is a flagship city. Its inhabitants are called Cannois (e) in French and canenc (a) in Provençal (pronounced locally canenc and canenco).

Ligurian fishing village during antiquity, linked to the legends of Saint-Honorat and the man with the iron mask on the Lérins islands off the bay of Cannes, resort and seaside resort of the Côte d'Azur in the 19th century century, the city took off with the construction of holiday homes by English and Russian aristocrats and, from the early twentieth century, luxury hotels for wealthy tourists, constituting its architectural heritage.

With a high-tech industry, a small business airport, several ports and a convention center, anchored in the Bay of Cannes, bordered by the Esterel Massif to the west, the Gulf Juan to the east and the Mediterranean Sea, Cannes is nowadays world famous for its film and pleasure festivals and for its Croisette lined with some palaces."wikiped
