Paris, the most photogenic city of the world

up:date, 28 12 2021 by Bonn Brandt

The Paris street scene series was photographed by Jans Bock-Schroeder from 2010 to 2012 during daily explorations from the Eiffel Tower to Notre Dame all the way to the Boulevard Périphérique. This series of images portraying Paris captures the spirit of the city in the magical simplicity of black and white, viewed through the lens of a vintage Leica camera.

Paris Streetphotography

Street photography is a great way to capture the magical element that is easily overlooked. The avenues and boulevards of Paris are an ideal environment for any outdoor photographer. The most important thing is to live in the moment and capture an image that reveals the character of the subject while capturing the essence of a place - with all its imperfections.

Available as exclusive collector's box from April 2022.

The charm of Paris

Paris changes from day to day, from season to season, whether you're walking down a boulevard or sitting in a café. In the markets, on the sidewalks, in small details that could be overlooked - photos of Paris make you want to linger.

Paris is a city that feels like an extension of your own mind. Capturing the complexity, strangeness and beauty that make Paris so unique is a challenge, especially for one's own perception. Paris means something different to everyone.
