PARIS. Portrait of a City



Multilingual Edition: English, French, German



Built on two millennia of history, Paris is as much a city to fall in love with as a city to photograph. This visual companion to the French metropolis brings together the chic spirit of the city through hundreds of meticulously researched images, from some of the very earliest pictures ever taken of Paris—by Louis Daguerre and Henry Fox Talbot—to iconic images of its fashion, art, and architecture.



Part of the “Portrait of a City” series from Taschen.

Stunning images sourced from dozens of archives and collections depict the cities from their early history to the present day.
