Paris. Over several years, I recorded the details I loved and that defined the city for me. I used color as a means of filtering out distractions and evoking distinct moods. When Paris wore yellow, she cheered me up. The verdant greens of the trees along the promenades calmed me down. Black evoked a sense of mystery, sophistication, and secrecy. On the days I hadn’t decided what I’d photograph, I’d leave it up to chance. After a few minutes, a certain color would grab my attention. It always
falling in love with the city. I wanted to capture the natural rhythm of red as I walked Paris’s streets from morning to night. I submitted to the color, and let it guide me from arrondissement to arrondissement. From worn facades to mopeds, wine glasses to café signs, each detail drew me a little closer. When night fell, the mood changed, and my attention shifted to red light, often intimate, always inviting. What strikes me most as I reflect on the project is that the collection is greater
from morning to night. The city is dressed up in her most lustrous reds like a new dress for a first date. What happens next is between you and Paris.
