People from across the world flock to Paris for its rich history in art, architecture, and intellectual achievement: its expansive avenues and manicured gardens inspire people in these fields to innovate. It's the same for me. I felt a draw to Paris' penchant for self-reflection and found myself feeling more motivated to practice my art than ever before.
Paris kept me on my toes. I spent my free time trying to see this magnifique city with a cinematic eye, while still staying true to my personal aesthetic. These are some of my favorite attempts at seeing cinematically — all in an anamorphic ratio.
