Cole Porter wrote about it. Frank Sinatra crooned about it, and I’ve photographed it: Paris.
A collection of 17 images from my most recent visit to the City of Light is now on exhibition at the library in Great Falls, Va.
A special feature is a series of street portraits, seven Parisians in the fifth arrondissement. They are walking among the cafés along the Place de la Contrescarpe, famed for the artists and writers who once chose them as haunts. They are people with confidence, style, and strength. I like street photography. It forces me to get out from behind the viewfinder and engage with people.
The free exhibition, along with a showing of nature photography by Dee Leggett, continues through the month of May at the Library.
