The photographs in this series represent a trip "home" to revisit the city where I first picked up the camera as a teenager.

I recently made my first visit back to Paris after an almost twenty-five year absence. I was there for ten days in February of 2001. I fell in love with the city that had almost become ghostlike in my memory. Ten days walking the streets of Paris, mostly in the rain, for six or seven hours a day, enraptured.

In July of 2001, I returned to share Paris with my eighteen-year-old daughter. We stayed for four weeks with no agenda or plan other than to live, as much as possible, as Parisians. She brought her camera and her journal, and I brought mine.

What has emerged is a photographic love-letter to Paris and the Parisians. I hope you enjoy it. If you have a history with Paris I hope these images inspire happy nostalgia without too much longing. And if you have never experienced Paris, I hope this love-letter inspires you to take the trip.
