This book captures every aspect of Paris and its inhabitants: urban acrobats take to the streets, a sandaled nun crosses the capital on a city bike, extravagant party-goers strike memorable silhouettes during gay pride, children frolic in city fountains on a steamy summer day, and aging friends enjoy an aperitif at Les Deux Magots. The Parisian landscape is illuminated through photographs of the snow-covered Canal Saint-Martin at night, the Ferris wheel at the Place de la Concorde, a balloon launch at the July Column, and a Bastille Day aerial parade of military planes leaving ribbons of blue, white, and red smoke in their wake. Rare glimpses behind the scenes include a table set for intimate dining in the Salon des Ambassadeurs at the Presidential Elysee Palace, the empty stage at the Opera-Comique, or a taxidermist at work at the natural history museum. From amateur fashionistas strutting their stuff to tourists posing with masterpieces in the Louvre to miniature dogs in miniature coats, this is an authentic portrait of Paris today.
