"Paris... so much beauty.
A desire since always to photograph it.
I have often thought about it but I had no thread. What story should I tell?
The idea is over.
And then on March 17, 2020, my birthday, France is confined and Paris becomes silent.
A new story.
A call to creativity and the duty to remember. I love the emptiness, the space and the silence that emanates from this confinement. And then there is this light, this radiant sun that awakens the beauty of our capital.
I thought I knew this city, but in the end I rediscover it every moment. The feeling is quite disturbing. I feel a bit like a survivor, an actor from another dimension. Everything is calm, clean and silent. I ride around on a scooter and the happiness of wandering around in this dehumanized Paris is sometimes heavy but unheard of. " Stephane Gizard
