Old Books in Paris

10 Euros a piece

Old books for sale in an open-air book market, Paris, France

Today is simply a collection of images made at an open-air book market on Boulevard Saint Germain in Paris. There were all manner of books, from very old to very new; fiction and non-fiction; historical classics and modern thrillers. But there was one thing that stood out above all… the smell. The smell of old, worn books. Books that have been pre-loved and cherished. Pages that have been thumbed and flipped. Ah yes, there’s nothing quite like the smell and feel of old books!

Photography is about vision; I love making photographs that tell a location’s story – the place, the people and the culture. I'm a photographer with a relaxed approach. I'm an experienced traveller and love teaching others about photography. Images can be made anywhere - right in your back yard or in exotic overseas locations. I can teach you not only to look at your surroundings, but also to really "see" what's there. Photography is more than just pressing a button. It's also about vision. Let me show you how to look, see and capture your world.
