-All new photographs by Henk van Cauwenbergh, who revisits a selection of Parisian brasseries from his earlier book, Les Brassieries de Paris, and discovers new places and people that capture the perennial charm of the City of Light In this ode to the charms of Paris and Parisian style, Belgian photographer Henk van Cauwenbergh captures the essence of the city's most iconic venues and its perennially chic denizens. He seeks out the culinary hotspots of Paris and turns his camera on the places to see and be seen. Inspired by the microcosm of Saint-Germain, his Paris is imbued with the spirit of the places where people gather: the casual efficiency of waiters at Les Deux Magots and the Caf de Flore, the boisterous atmosphere of Brasserie Lipp. Long influenced by urban and innate style of Serge Gainsbourg, Charles Aznavour, Catherine Deneuve, and Jeanne Moreau, van Cauwenbergh's Paris is one of seduction and nonchalance, of beautiful women, and the heady emotions of first love.
