Romantic, cinematic, melancholic, timelessâ€”few cities embody these descriptions better than Paris, and few photographs better than those of Serge Ramelli. In Paris: Serge Ramelli, a book recently published by teNeues, 176 pages are filled with theÂ French photographer’s black-and-white images of the city. Donâ€™t expect any shots of handsome Parisians; the photos show few of the cityâ€™s inhabitants in lieu of the life of the historic French capital itselfâ€”its streets, buildings, landmarks, and the many volumes and shades of its light. Taking notes from film directors such as Luc Besson and Jean Pierre Jeunet, Ramelliâ€™s works are imaginative and emotive, making Paris not a page-turner but rather a book to savor (US$75).
