Many thanks to Ana for her generosity! If you would like to add to this resource, please send your additions to Gerri Kimber at and join our roll call of honour!

Many of the events which took place at the recent Katherine Mansfield week in Menton, 21-26 September 2009, were photographed by a professional photographer and KMS member Mary Gaudin. The photographs are absolutely stunning. Mary has generously offered the KMS 50% of the proceeds from the sale of all the Menton photos and related items. Click here to view and purchase. Mary Gaudin is a New Zealand photographer currently living in Montpellier in south-western France. As well as studying botany and landscape architecture in New Zealand, she studied photography in London. Her last article on the cuisine of Marseilles is in the current issue of the New Zealand travel magazine 'Inspire'.  When Mary left New Zealand for Europe the only book she brought with her was The Garden Party and so as a KM devotee she was thrilled to be at the symposium in Menton.
More of Mary's images can be seen on her website :
