The Tourist

A collection of images taken during a year of living in Paris. The first chapter is probably the most boring one, as it is basically comprised of the photos that we all take when we arrive in a new and shiny touristic destination. And in Paris, that is easy, just turn your camera towards any of the hundreds of attractions and just shoot.

While the thought that I actually am living in Paris was sinking in, I was in sightseeing mode all the time, taking stock postcard photography of everything and anything. But then, after the critical mass of realization happened, I started seeing Paris like an insider, even if I never felt like one.
