Just a name, just a city,
But which has made for a long time such an impression on people, even the ones who just dream about it…
It’s a tourist destination, symbol of romanticism and love.
It’s a concentrated of History, with not only museums but walls, houses, neighbourhoods filled with histories.
It’s a big city hosting millions of people studying, working, living.
For me it was first a big, loud (way too much in the North) city were I spent a summer a long time ago working as a research student in a lab in a well-known hospital. I felt crushed by the city at the time, feeling only the monotonous rythmes “metro-boulot-dodo” (train commute – job – bed time, and repeat).
Then years (a life time??) later I came back and spend a year with my family in the center of the city and I learned to love it. I discovered Paris by foot (I admit sometimes quite painful with a stroller!!).
My Paris, became my paradise for Street Photography.
