I woke up tired, realizing as I turned off my alarm that I missed a FaceTime call from my daughter… a frustrating way to start the day. The weather forecast called for:
“Thunderstorms, some severe. Storms can bring downpours, large hail, damaging winds and a tornado”.
A tornado? In Paris? This could be interesting…
The rain held off until the end of the day, allowing us to explore and photograph the two islands in the Seine: Île de la Cité and Île Saint-Louis. It was a day on the streets, a reminder that the heart of Paris doesn’t just beat in the churches or the towers, in the museums or the palaces. The heart of Paris beats on its streets, in the lives of its citizens, and this is what we set out to capture on this day.
Simple scenes. Snippets of daily life. The heartbeat of a city.
