Even back in 1989 when I took most of these photos, the population of 5.6 mill was crammed into 1,100 km2. Yet despite the constant hustle & bustle, the teeming crowds, I subconsciously focused my lens on loners, dreamers, the homeless, those on the fringe of society…

At that time, « loneliness » didn’t really figure as one of my themes, it was only on taking a closer look at my archives a few years ago, that I discovered these photos with different eyes and preoccupations.

African Fishermen in Paris https://www.brenda-turnnidge.fr/blog/2017/1/Africanfishermen Toqué Frères are back on the block! These street artists, whose mission is to beautify the drabbest and most neglected parts of the City of Lights have created   yet another stunning mural, just 50 metres from my flat. This is a real invitation to travel and escape the sub-zero temperatures of North Europe. 

Merci aux frères d'avoir embelli mon voisinage!

I first started this collection back in 1987 when I was struck by the variety of mannequins being displayed in front of Mr Angelopoulos's shop on the corner of Ermou & Pittaki streets. Mr Angelopoulos was delighted to tell me that in it's hey day in the 1990's it even attracted young Japanese fashionistas on photo shoots in Europe. The shop disappeared more than a few years ago and Mr Angelopoulos has since died. The area is now part of the recently gentrified Psyrri district. 

I still roam those streets in search of lost Gods and Goddesses & sometimes find them lurking in Athens Flea Market.

From Stalingrad to Rosa Parks

 

Welcome burst of colour!

 

As 2015 draws to a close I set out to discover the latest additions to the capital’s bustling street art scene. From the dark, dismal area under the elevated viaduct of Paris’s Métro Line 2 I head north up rue d’Aubervilliers towards the pont Ricquet and the new Rosa Parks district.    

 

Until recently there was a drab grey wall alongside N°s 104-164, now it’s been transformed thanks to artists Bastardilla, Kashink ,Katjastroph, Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, Zepha and many others.

The magic carpet saga    Day 2

On 28 August at 6.10 pm, the carpet is still there at La Fourche!
Wondering if it isn't perhaps art ...

 Nobody seems to be taking the slightest notice!

28 August 

10.30 pm... the carpet has flown away... magic! Has anyone seen it?
