And this world-class capital is surely one of the planet's most photographed destinations, whether by tourists snapping a quick souvenir shot or professionals with high-end cameras. The brief preview we provide here shows how special this city really is. Paris has never been showcased as impressively, meaningfully, or dramatically as it is by the French photographer Serge Ramelli. His vision of the city, like all of his images, is unmistakably inspired by cinema. In addition to his second passion, filmmaking, he is also fascinated by the films of Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Ridley Scott. Ramelli's interpretation of the bustling metropolis of Paris is at once impressive and fabulous. Pulsing with life both day and night, the city appears nearly devoid of people, a heavily symbolic place with many facets to explore, shining with an inimitable light.

Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Paris... so familiar and yet surprising. In pastel shades and dazzling details like the palette of French Impressionism, Serge Ramelli presents a unique and personal photo homage to the City of Lights. With romance and history in her blood, Paris shows her tender side as never seen before.

Only Paris offers the inimitable stage that can turn every photo into a film still. In its architectural splendor, its wealth of churches, palaces, parks, and grand boulevards, the city is peerless in its beauty and allure. Add to that a long, rich, and influential history, and this coveted capital is art in its purest form.

From the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre, to Montmartre and Saint-Germain-des-Pres--the traces of painters and photographers and echoes of actors and movie directors can be found all over the city. In this exquisite Paris photo book, Serge Ramelli pays tribute to this unique legacy of art and culture, capturing the city's poetic flair. As in vintage postcards, with glowing street lights or only certain details in color in a black and white panorama, Ramelli accentuates particular picture elements to create a modern, 3D effect, while retaining a close connection to Parisian history.

Vivid in one's memory or perhaps imagination, Ramelli collects rapturous moments with his camera--a brilliant firework display in front of the Eiffel Tower or the sight of the Pont Neuf amidst freshly fallen snow. In the beguiling blue hour, or a nuit (the magical light at sunrise and sunset), the photographer shows a kaleidoscope along the Seine that will delight all who have lived and loved in Paris.
