William Eggleston usually traffics in southern languor, so it should be interesting to see what he makes of the more continental variety…

The seminal photographer took a trip to Paris at the urging of the Foundation Cartier, and the resulting pictures make up his latest monograph, simply titled Paris. The city’s as iconic as it ever was, but these shots focus more on smaller moments and offhand framings. There are even a few drawings thrown in the mix to enforce more casual feel, which suits Eggleston just about perfectly.

After all, he’s only passing through.
