Paris: Portrait of a City

Paris: Portrait of a City Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Over the centuries, Paris has enjoyed a reputation as a city at the forefront of architecture and urban planning. Its grand boulevards and parks, its classical proportions, its towers and palaces imprint themselves on the memories of the many visitors to this most imposing of cities. Prize-winning photographer Matthew Weinreb turns his expert eye to the rich facades of the French capital, throwing a new and startling light on even the most familiar sites. Like his highly individual portrait of London, this visual essay revisits the monuments and icons, and elevates the everyday images of the city.

Issued in a miniature pocket-sized format, and at an incredible price, Paris: Portrait of a City is a powerful celebration of the buildings and their features, punctuated by anecdotal essays about centuries of Parisian architectural history.

Synopsis:

Composed of a sequence of images punctuated by a series of essays which explore Paris through its architectural features and materials, this book focuses on both famous landmarks and lesser-known, anonymous buildings.
