Paris –

Two Visits photos by David C Phillips


T

his book contains photos of two visits to Paris. The first section contains some of the photos I took when I stopped in Paris (on the way through from Limoges back to San Francisco) in March 2006. I had been

to Limoges to carry out research and take photographs for Cork Marcheschi’s book Camille Fauré: Impossible Objects on the amazing enamel vases turned out by the Fauré studio in Limoges. On my way back I had three or four hours to kill in Paris before going to the airport so I set forth, camera in hand, to what I have always considered the heart of Paris which spreads out from Notre Dame Cathedral along the Seine in both directions and surrounding areas. It was late winter, a fairly grey day which turned to rain. Some of the results of these three or four hours are here in the first section of this book, page 3 - 45. I went to Paris on another occasion, in May 2008, on a photo and video assignment for Fine Art Registry, with Teri and Logan Franks and Frank Hunter. We stayed in a rented apartment for close to a week and, the work being over before I was due to return to the USA, I was able to wander around similar parts of Paris and take photos to my heart’s content (or almost to my heart’s content). Some of the photos from this second trip, during which the weather was glorious every day, can be found on pages 46 to the end. I can’t wait for a third trip to take another crack at it! The subject is infinite and the city one of the most photogenic I have ever visited. I hope you enjoy the photos and that they make you want to visit or revisit Paris. David Phillips 4
