Paris in Black and White: here is a selection of 30 photos we took over the last few years in the City of Lights. From the Louvre to the Eiffel Tower, from Notre-Dame to Montmartre, the French capital is always at its best when it needs to be photographed.


“He who contemplates the depths of Paris is seized with vertigo.

Nothing is more fantastic. Nothing is more tragic.

Nothing is more sublime.”

― Victor Hugo

“I never rebel so much against France as not to regard Paris with a friendly eye; she has had my heart since my childhood…. I love her tenderly, even to her warts and her spots. I am French only by this great city: the glory of France, and one of the noblest ornaments of the world.”

― Michel de Montaigne

“Mine was the twilight and the morning. Mine was a world of rooftops and love songs.”

― Roman Payne, Rooftop Soliloquy

“When good Americans die, they go to Paris.”

― Oscar Wilde

“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.”

― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

“To study in Paris is to be born in Paris!”

― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
