C'est magnifique

Le Flâneur (music by The XX) from Luke Shepard on Vimeo.


Check out Paris in 2000 images at National Geographic Traveler for an interview with Luke Shepard about this project.

A photographer strolling through a city can be thought of as le flâneur: an observer, someone perceptive, thoughtful, attuned to broader patterns and smaller exquisite details, mapping out the city on foot.

Going to Paris os a dream of mine.
I hope it's a dream that comes true.

I'm glad you all enjoyed.

Such a beautiful city. That it has known such extremes of bloodshed, violence and cruelty on so many occasions but remains so graceful always boggles me.
