Les Hommes et Les Femmes
De Paris [1961-1963]
Les Enfants Aussi !

These images are a small attempt to capture the daily life in Paris of the early 1960's. To keep them in a candid style on the closer shots, I usually used a 105mm or 200mm lens on a Nikon F with a waist level finder, shooting backwards, the lens concealed under my arm.

Very little is needed in the way of explanation for most of the images, as they simply capture a moment in time.
