A bastion of wild amid a tourism-sanitized coastline. Every summer for some 30 years, a cadre from across Europe sets up camp at Piémanson, a beach in the south of France’s Camargue Regional Nature Reserve. More than campers, these “doyens,” as they are known, create a community devoted to communal, coastal living. At summer’s end, they vanish, returning to their real worlds, leaving no trace, save for the documentary pictures captured by Paris-based photographer Vasantha Yogananthan, who spent five summers documenting this scruffy utopia.

Inspired by Princess Tina atop her trailer throne, I want to take a summer stand in the sand in this kaftan with crochet fins.
