ONE OF A KIND / Black and White in Paris

Paris never fails to enchant; after years of visits I am still chasing its elusive je ne sais quoi. Inspired by iconic French photographers, I decided, this time, to capture the city in black and white. Perhaps I could find the hidden Paris this way: in the slight gradations of shadows and sharply silhouetted structures.

A long history of French photographers have shot Paris in black and white – Robert Doisneau, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Marc Riboud, to name a few. Their beautiful works are enduring testaments to the power of looking at cityscapes differently, with a keen eye for subtlety and grace.
