Paris: Women & Bicycles

Paperback

Purchase from Bookshop Santa Cruz


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.
*Bertrand DelanoŽ, mayor of Paris

In Paris: Women & Bicycles, acclaimed photographer Gil Garcetti (Iron: Erecting the Walt Disney Concert Hall) 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.
