London - Paris is a random and personal view of two cities I have lived and
worked in. My interest lies in the transformation and evolution of urban space
and the constant presence of multiple layers of time — reflecting the
histories of these ancient cities.
Lincoln Inn Fields is built on what was once a place of public execution.
Tour St Jacques is all that remains of 'Saint Jacques de la Boucherie' - a
church situated in what was once the quartier of the butchers. The church
is also located on the ancient pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostela. In
my 'landmarks' series there are two other images
of locations in Burgundy on this pilgrim route.
Parc Andrť CitroŽn is one of the new parks of Paris. Constructed on the site
of a former CitroŽn car factory it is a modernist view of the traditional
french park. When I first moved to Paris in 1997 it provided a link with the
Australian bush as its glasshouses contain eucalyptus trees. In my first winter
in Paris this unmistakable scent of gum trees reminded me of the bush 17,000kms
Pont Neuf, the 'new' bridge is despite its name the oldest bridge in Paris.
