Publisher's presentation:

" In the shape of a true Paris map, Martin Parr invites us to follow him in the French capital. For three years, commissioned by the Maison Européeenne de la Photographie (MEP), Martin Parr has focused his lens on Parisians and photographed the Champs-Elysées, tourists, Bastille Day, fashion shows, Paris Air Show, museums and art fairs, the Agricultural Show... 

In the end, around forty unpublished images and several previous iconic ones of everyday scenes convey a concentrate of Parisian atmosphere. "

The exhibition of the same name currently takes place at the  Maison Européenne de la Photographie (MEP) from March 26th to May 25th, 2014.
The cover of the book is a mock-up of the "classic" Paris map, and was made possible with the friendly cooperation of Ponchet - Plan Net (éditions Vilo).
