Paris is beautiful no matter how you view it, but through a monochrome lens, its true elegance and character become strikingly apparent.
Removing color from a place so rich in fashion, art and culture impresses a fresh perspective upon both the tourist and seasoned resident.
You see things differently, and find magnificence between shades of gray that you may have missed walking the colorized streets in person.

Paris is THE city for monochrome. There is something so timeless about that really comes through in black and white. Simple, yet still complex and always so lovely! Beautiful photographs.
