For Jan Plan this year I joined a group of 20 students for a French literature course titled Literature and Real-Time Topographies—in Paris! We had morning class followed by student-led tours of different parts of the city. As we were introduced to different areas of Paris we connected their present state to their role in French history and in the classic French novels by Balzac and Flaubert that we were reading.

 

In becoming acquanited with the city, my camera never left my side. I wanted to capture and remember it all. What gradually began to fascinate me were the lights of Paris. Natural or man-made, lighting affected how I saw everything and everyone. Lighting brought the Seine to life at night and outlined the intimacy in the smallest details of my morning tasse de café.

 

Paris, je t'aime!
