Photographer's Note

The neo-classical architecture of Paris was the idea of Napolen III. He levelled down the older quarters in 1853 and chose Georges-Eugène Haussmann to deal with the plans for the modern-day Paris that we see. I admire how Parisians are very strict with architectural codes and do not allow for modern skyscrapers to leave the city's beautiful architecture under the shadow. The sole exception is the 59-story Montparnasse tower.
