Part memoir and part visual journey, Moments Parfaits in Paris is a collection of forty vignettes that relates a very personal way of experiencing one of the most photographed cities in the world.
Sylvaine Lang travels to her beloved city several times a year; each visit triggers vivid recollections of her childhood and student days, the people who shaped her life and the strangers she met, the amusing episodes and the tribulations of travel, even when the destination is quite familiar. Each story pairs one of her own photographs and an anecdote. Sylvaine’s photography stays clear of the typical monumental approach and presents “her” Paris in an intimate way. The Eiffel Tower is seen through her dirty hotel window, the rabbit in the métro station looks at her expectantly, the glass ceiling of a famous brasserie magically appears in her cup of tea…
Serendipity and old memories mesh and weave yet another perfect moment. All the venues are indicated on a map for easy reference. Each vignette includes historical notes and travel tips to invite future visitors to discover Paris with a new set of eyes. Softcover with flaps, 8.5" x 8.5", 40 color photos, map, French glossary, 96 p.
