Waiter, Paris, 1959
While we are planning our photography Masterclass in Paris with Jeff Cowen (October 18-22, 2012), and our 3rd annual photography portfolio review, Lens Culture FotoFest Paris 2012 at Spéos (November 12-14, 2012), we are reminded of some of the many photographers who captured the romance of Paris during the 20th century. It’s wonderful to say that Paris has not changed much — it is as lovely and as visually romantic as ever.
Gallery owner Anna Walker Skillman from Jackson Fine Art in Georgia USA shared a dozen of her favorite Paris photos culled from the gallery’s flat files, with a note that she’s very eager to discover some great new contemporary photography when she returns to Paris to meet photographers during FotoFest Paris in November. Thanks, Anna!
