Last week we went to Paris. We wanted to see it through the lovers’ eyes, capture its fleeting beauty, uncover its secret places, spy on its everyday whereabouts. If you are following Fairies & Co on Instagram, last week you were visiting Paris with our lovely guide, Narine.
Narine came to Paris herself three years ago. First she studied Art History and Literature, later she changed to Oriental Languages. Her uncle is a film director, that’s why, she says, she always loved photography. And she always loved Paris.
While working on our Instagram Paris week, Narine realized that she would like to give guided private tours of her secret Paris places and combine them with photo-shootings. To keep in touch and get updates on her tours make sure to follow her on Istagram or on Facebook.
At night Paris emerges like an impressionist painting. Arts bridge -Le Pont des Arts – one of my Paris favourites. There met the heroes of my favourite novel, there they wandered, kissed, watched les clochards, cried, parted ways and reunited.
I loved Paris before I knew it. Paris is Jean-Luc Godard, Francois Truffaut and Roger Vadim, it`s old chansons d’amour, black-and-white, sensual language and Rodin and his living lovemaking bronze figures. Paris is a picture from my first French textbook: Sorbonne, fountains and bouquinistes – sellers of antique books on the banks of la Seine.
Today Paris is me, sitting on a bench, Paris is the guy, who wanted to take my picture, a street musician – I put on my sun-glasses to hide my tears, Paris is Madeleine dancing on the bridge, Paris is a vagabond chilling on the terrace. Paris is my morning coffee and croissant.
