Romantic, cinematic, melancholic, timeless—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 the French photographer’s black-and-white images of the city. Don’t expect any shots of handsome Parisians; the photos show few of the city’s inhabitants in lieu of the life of the historic French capital itself—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, Ramelli’s works are imaginative and emotive, making Paris not a page-turner but rather a book to savor (US$75).
