My love affair with Paris started when I was 16 years old. My Dad took me to the city for my birthday and together we discovered what has since become my most beloved place on earth. Ernest Hemingway once claimed that ‘all Paris belongs to me’ – anyone who has lived in this city will feel this too. No matter where we are from or where we’re going, Paris is a place that our hearts hold onto. And while no one really has claim to this city, it really feels like we do. I for one know that part of me will always belong to Paris, memories have wrapped themselves around ever corner of this city. There are balconies I laughed on, bridges I cried on, cafes I felt alone in, bars I fell in love in, and alongside that, an entire mirage of faces I met during my journey so far here. And when I compare living here to a journey, Paris is precisely that. It’s an ongoing exploration, even after 3 years, I know there is still so much to absorb from this city. And so, in light of this, let me introduce you to a different sort of Paris journey: I recently discovered Paris Postcards, a magical little book illustrated by the incredibly talented Jason Brooks. I was so enthralled by his work, I decided to capture some photographs using his drawings as the centrepieces but also the inspiration. It was a fun project – and the perfect excuse to buy macarons! If you’d like your own copy of the book, its available here on amazon – I’m planning on framing my favourites for my new apartment.
