Paris. Portrait of a City

Paris. Portrait of a City


Paris, Je t'aime

A photographic tribute to the capital of romance

Described by Goethe as the “universal city where every step upon a bridge or a square recalls a great past,” Paris is as rich in its two millennia of history as it is in its beauty, its romance, and its art. It’s the city of Marcel Proust and Coco Chanel, of Edith Piaf and Jean-Paul Sartre, of Impressionism, Cubism, Surrealism, of Left Bank cool and the twinkling lights of the Tour Eiffel by night.

It was also on the banks of the Seine that Niépce and Daguerre officially gave birth to the new art of photography, and in this evocative tapestry of images, we celebrate the city’s remarkable photographic, as well as cultural, architectural, and civic history. Some 300 pictures bring together past and present, the monumental and the everyday faces and vistas, as well as the talents of such illustrious photographers as Daguerre, Marville, Atget, Lartigue, Brassaï, Kertész, Ronis, Doisneau, and Cartier-Bresson.

With cover art by Robert Nippoldt, this collection is complemented by an extensive appendix of around 100 books, movies, and records inspired by the city of lights.

Robert Nippoldt is a German illustrator and book artist known for various publications and stage programs about the 1920s, as well as drawings for The New Yorker and Time magazine. He has received over two dozen awards worldwide, including from the Art Directors Club in New York and the International Design Award in Los Angeles.

Paris la ville des lumières

Mattéo,12 novembre 2021
Paris, une des plus belles capitales. L’arc de triomphe, la Tour Eiffel, le musée du Louvre… tous ces lieux mythiques font le charme de Paris. Au fil des années Paris évolue. Malgré les guerres et parfois les crises Paris à su rester debout. Ce livre est très intéressant pour découvrir un Paris au cours du temps.
