Hard back book with 96 pages and 69 duotone photographs offers a rich and multi-faceted portrait of the French capital over the last five decades. Paul, a Hungarian photographer and keen traveller, started his career as a journalist and has covered the world and settled in France in the 50s. His images capture the social conditions experienced by the rich and the poor of the country and in this book we see a collection of photographs spanning three decades. Its a real insight into the street life and its people. A young couple dancing on the bank of the Seine, an atmospheric grab of citizens waiting at a bus stop, a cleaner at the Eiffel tower. The photographs are far from technically perfect so dont buy this to develop your printing or exposure skills, but youll begin to appreciate from one of the masters what to look for if photojournalism is your chosen avenue.
