Paris - The Dream of any Street Photographer

 

In spite of

  • an increasing Disneyfication of admirable sights

  • a banalization beyond recognition of distinctive localities

  • a growing McDonaldization

Paris still possesses inexhaustible inspiration.

As to that, the many people, inhabitants, tourists

- play a conspicuous role

 

Using the traditional sights as the background the book focuses on the people of Paris, making the humans the attractions.
