Paris 足 people and street art. And a dog. And a tortoise. Perhaps.

This is a SoFoBoMo book 2011. SoFoBoMo is a group event where photographers all around the world make solo photo books in PDF form, in 31 days, start to finish. You will find SoFoBoMo at

All photos in this book were taken between July 9th and July 16th in Paris, France, with a Sony Alpha 850, a Tamron SP AF 90mm F/2,8 Di MACRO 1:1 or a Minolta AF 75­300 F4.5­5.6 lens.

This is my first attempt at a SoFoBoMo book ­ I had so much fun creating it :­) and hope you are going to have a lot of fun now, too!

Whenever I am in Paris the two things that impress me most are a) the street art everywhere and b) the people doing all kind of things they want or they have to do. Usually I take photographs without any serious concept in mind but this time, in July 2011, I knew I was going to try to make a SoFoBoMo book. So ... after some days it became clear: the book has to be divided in two parts. Part One 足 people doing all the things they like to do: dancing, eating, skateboarding, cycling. And people doing the things they have to do for a living. And just ... people. This part is in black and white, since monochrome is my choice for this kind of street photography. Part Two 足 street art. The small and tiny kind of street art: defaced street signs, faces stenciled on corners, stick figures painted on lamp posts. Mostly corners and lamp posts I have to admit. And perhaps invader says "Hello!", too. Who can be sure? This part is in colour. Of course. 余足) Have fun and enjoy! Martina
