Things That Caught My Eye in Le Marais and Montmartre

Paris is one of the most photographed cities on earth for good reason. The architecture, the art, and the people in the city have captivated photographers for over a century now. 

I have always tried to create unique images and focus on the small details of daily life that often go overlooked or ignored. In a city where beauty surrounds you, it gets easy to become desensitized to the splendor and meticulous artistry that exists throughout Paris. 

The photos accompanying this post, not cliché images of monuments such as the Arc De Triomphe or the Tour Eiffel, are representative of the Paris I have experienced so far. 

Stay tuned for the next set of photos.

<p style="margin-bottom: 12pt;">I am a Philadelphia native currently majoring in History (and possibly minoring in Film) at Connecticut College. I've always enjoyed writing and photography and this past year I joined the editorial staff at my college's student-run newspaper in an effort to broaden the audience for my work. I'm considering pursuing a career in journalism because of my love of storytelling and connecting with others to produce socially relevant content. I am an avid reader, artist, and cook, both of my parents worked in the restaurant business, and I love to get to know people over a home-cooked meal.</p>
