Paris: Portrait of a City

$40
Product info

Paris: Portrait of a City is a beautiful photographic tribute to the City of Lights. This stunning clothbound book is filled with page after page of moving photographs that together blend the past and present of one of the world’s most iconic metropolises. Divided by time period into five chapters, it begins with some of Daguerre’s early long-exposure shots taken in the mid-1800s and moves through the decades until arriving at the 21st century. Of course you’ll find images of famous landmarks, such as the Arc de Triomphe, the Moulin Rouge, the Notre Dame cathedral and the catacombs. But mixed in with these grandiose locales are also charming mundane moments from across the years — artists at work, busy streets, chic locals, jazz fans crowded into smoky bars and children at play, as well as bleaker shots that capture times of war and occupation. You’ll also find portraits of some of the city’s famed residents, like Edith Piaf, Salvador Dali, Coco Chanel and Henri Cartier-Bresson, to name just a few. Each photo is accompanied by a brief caption that sheds light on its photographer, subject and cultural and historical significance. Also included is an extensive appendix that lists one hundred recommended books, movies and records that capture a bit of Paris’s intangible magic. A must have for Francophiles and the photography-obsessed alike.
