ÎLE DE LA CITÉAbout this photograph
It is considered by many as the most beautiful city in the world... and for good reason. With its monuments, lights and quays along the Seine, Paris amazes, fascinates and makes you dream. Sometimes you just want it all to yourself. Not to mentionthe unbelievable bustle which reigns throughout the day, like in a giant beehive,where everyone is struggling to get on with their tasks, sometimes to the detriment of others. In light of this, Damien Vassart has produced a series of photos in his parti-cular style. The photographs available give a different slant on Paris, a world awayfrom the cluttered image of the capital that would normally be the case. It is apoetic and timeless gaze, through which a more serene Paris, which invites contem-plation and escape, may be rediscovered.Read more Read less

Paris inspires awe; Paris makes us dream. Without banking on the incredible agitation that reigns day in and day out, each of us endeavours to follow our path, sometimes to the detriment of others. The black and white photographs that Damien Vassart has taken since 2007 exalt the majestic nature of both the urban landscapes and architecture that draw our eye. Born in 1984 in the suburbs of Brussels, he first trained at the SAE Institute (a school specialising in audiovisual studies) before settling definitively in the heart of Paris, as a professional photographer. Damien Vassart started out in this discipline by chance, although what later guided his work was already deeply rooted inside him. His images have been exhibited in Paris and have won numerous awards and distinctions between 2010 and 2014: at the International Photography Awards (United States), the Spider Awards (United Kingdom) and the PX3 Prix de la Photographie (France).
