‘Shimmer’ by Alison McCauley presents an enigmatic sequence of images captured on the French Riviera between 2013 and 2023. The Côte d’Azur is a destination overrun with visitors and tourists offering a hedonistic lifestyle that attracts many in search of escapism, pleasure and money.

‘While working on this series, I often had a quote from Somerset Maugham in my head. He referred to the French Riviera as ‘a sunny place for shady people’. This connected with what I was seeing and feeling. It is this contrast between the beautiful shimmering surfaces and the downside that intrigues me. Shimmer is my love letter to this place … but it is a pragmatic, wide-eyed kind of love. ‘
