Being one of the biggest, most fascinating and most populous cities in Europe, Paris offers to all photo lovers incredible and stunning opportunities to capture impressive pictures, that will maintain memories alive, and will manage to get a smile even in the darkest days.
Among the many capitals, Paris is the chicest one, thanks to its blend of high-level kitchen, fashion, stunning pieces of art, marvelous architectonic elements, churches and romantic cafés. Founded in the III century B.C. by an ancient Celtic population called Parisii, the city was a major trading crossroad and hosted one of the main academic center in Europe. It was the largest city in the western world throughout the whole XII century, and with the pass of time, the city lived an animated and eventful history that shaped it in form and culture. Nowadays it is worldwide recognized as a center of artistic, architectonic, cultural and finance interest.
Home of some famous personalities (Renoir, Chanel, Voltaire, Victor Hugo, Napoleon, Edith Piaf, Baudelaire, Pierre and Marie Curie…) and location of some of the most important events that influenced the course of the history, each monument, street and corner of the Ville Lumière, is able to tell a story. Each one of them could illustrate both the golden ages, characterized by the excellences of art and culture, as well as dark periods of war, riots and depravation. Beyond the beauty of monuments and streets lay, therefore, something hidden, untouchable, that can bring you back to past days, personalities and historical events. A kind of lost time that is always present in the streets of a city that is today a symbol of globalization.
Through the years, Paris made of elegance and culture some of the emblems of its character, and for a photo-lover this is an amazing location, where every single corner could be a photographic masterpiece. A lot of “shooting urban safaris” could take place in Paris, and numerous photographic projects could be developed with a camera in this magnificent city.
