Some time ago the collaborative photography space Mus-Mus (perhaps you’ve seen their project @600?) got in touch with me about contributing to their @Paris project, which was later juried by photographers Stephen Shore and Gil Blank along with Denise Wolff (Editor, Book Program at Aperture). Since I was at the time traveling in France, I was excited about the opportunity and was sure to send them my contribution after leaving Paris.
The project launched earlier this month and is now available to view in its entirety online. Included are images by a selection of fantastic photographers (such good company!):
Alec Soth, Bertien van Manen, Beth Dow, Corinne Vionnet, David LaSpina, Georg Parthen, Gil Blank, Gus Powell, Hin Chua, Jason Fulford, Louis Porter, Lucas Blalock, Mark Steinmetz, Matthew Spiegelman, Michael David Murphy, Mike Slack, Paul Schiek, Richard Renaldi, Shane Lavalette, Simon Roberts, Stephen Shore, Thobias Fäldt and many, many more.
Here’s a screenshot of my contribution:

Along with the photographs, Mus-Mus published two interesting texts: Abdu’l-Baha in Paris by Darius Himes and Paris and Photography as the Promise of Possibility by Ulrich Baer – both worth a read.
