in each city ami asks 50 of its inhabitants to hand-draw a map to a place of their choosing, a place that is significant or important to them personally, for any reason. she then uses the maps to navigate to each location and take a photograph to represent each location. the ° books portray a side of each city as interpreted by those who live and work in it every day. its not a “guide” to the new café or club, but rather, a unique way of discovering different parts of the city.
fraction of the photos i took on my second visit to paris – it was fantastico!
don’t you love that word, ephemera?
she’s one of those swinging sixties, between london & paris, don’t really know what she did / does (acting? singing? modelling?), gets naked a lot (but in that sixties way) vintage babes – with a handbag named after her. herewith follows some photos, just because she’s cool. some are slightly nsfw (as she enjoys the nude, respect).
i first went to paris in 2005 … i haven’t looked at these photos basically since then (probably because they’re on my computer & not on actual film in an album!) it might sound cliché, but i fell in love with paris right there & then – and have been lucky enough to return twice since. more photos at my flickr.
