I love Paris, its streets and its sparkling diversity. I shot Paris at night, in the rain, with hurried pedestrians walking without seeing the ‘drawings’ created by the reflections of the neon lights, street lamps and flickering shop front lights on the wet pavements. My eye captures ‘unexpected’ matters and colours, generating scenes of compositions in photos of Paris in the rain, at night.
I then feel close to the artists who create a ‘poetic’ reality with their brushes and tubes of paint. For me, photographing Paris by night requires great sensitivity to find that precise moment when the film gets impregnated by the lack of light that creates the image that will unlock the journey to unknown worlds. In my opinion, the framing of a photo and in particular those of Paris by night and in the rain remains essential to open its mystery and emotion.
