Spanning the Seine, and spreading out beneath the heights of Montmartre and Montparnasse, Paris is an ideal subject for the panoramic photographer Hervé Champollion, in whom the City of Light has found a talented heir to Paris's photographic tradition. From the Louvre to Notre Dame to the Luxembourg Gardens and the Marais, this new volume presents breathtaking panoramic views of Paris's famed monuments, imposing churches and abbeys, royal palaces, extravagant mansions, and grand boulevards and bridges. Champollion's achingly beautiful photographs make it evident that Paris is far more than a collection of historic buildings, 19th-century cast-iron department stores, and public squares; it's numerous parks, gardens, canals, and secret waterways make Paris one of the most verdant cities in Europe. From the Palais Royal to the famed brasseries to the Eiffel Tower, this limited edition, which comes with a signed print, makes age-old Paris shine anew.
