City of Lights

In January 2015, Paris was hit by a terrorist attack that targeted France as a whole, and journalists, police and the Jewish community in particular.

These images were created as a reaction to such sombre days, as a way to oppose to blind ignorance and violence the symbol that Paris was and still is the City of Lights. A city that since it was created represents and allows for the development of sciences, the arts and culture, which are the weapons that one fights zealots, barbarians and ignorants.

A city that endures, a city that grows from its rich history, a city that resists. Paris’ motto is "fluctuat nec mergitur", after all: “tossed but not sunk”.
