I’ve written about Paris at length and it still remains one of the most significant cities in my life. Beyond the sentimental aspects of Paris, the light, the color palette, and the creative energy are unlike any other city I’ve visited in my life. It remains one of my favorite places to photograph.

Our most recent visit to Paris was the closest I’ve felt to being a local. After living in a flat in the 17th arrondissement in 2015, I felt no pressure to explore as much as possible or to make an endless amount of photographs, it was a more relaxed and slow paced visit. It’s a rare place in the world that calls to me, a place where I feel like I instantly belong. A city filled with creativity and passion.

All photographs were created with the Fujifilm X100F and the Hasselblad 500CM with Carl Zeiss Planar T* 2.8/80 on Kodak Portra 400.
