Paris: Women and Bicycles

How about that: A coffee table book featuring photos of women riding their bikes in Paris, France.


Paris: Women and Bicycles

From the publisher’s description:

These days, bicycles are as much a part of the image of Paris as the Eiffel Tower. Through his photographs, Gil Garcetti captures fleeting figures, silhouettes that appear suddenly, turn a street corner and then disappear on the horizon. With an artist’s eye, he goes beyond documentation and creates a delicate mosaic of our city on bicycles. This elegant work is at once tribute and testimony to the mix of commonplace and extraordinary featured on its pages.

In Paris: Women & Bicycles, acclaimed photographer Gil Garcetti focuses his attention on the head-turning sight of women as they ride their bicycles through the scenic streets of Paris. Dressed with a quintessential French flair, Parisian women of all ages commute to work, run errands, meet friends for coffee, catch a movie, or go to the theater. Through snow, rain, and summer heat they eschew cars, doing their part to clear the air in the city of light.

Waiting for Mikael to publish his book, now.
