Paris: Luke Shepard's Flaneur
Paris + flanerie = foolproof formula. This video trickled through the Twitter stream to me, tickled my curiosity long enough to distract me from work. Beware: it may well take you far, far away from your desk and work and responsibilities too. Beware...
- Although I'm no longer certain where or how I came across this tweet, I believe my meander started there, then lead me here:
- Ever since posting about Mike Matas's journey through Morocco & Spain, I've been fascinated by the use of still photography to create a voyage through a place. Now I'm in complete awe of American University of Paris student Luke Shepard who has created a breathtaking look at Paris with Le Flâneur. I love the lack of people in it, and the mood it creates. Just watch.
- Moody. Meandering. Music. Just watch. Then watch again. And again...
- Here's the discerning collector who discovered and shared Luke Shepard's video short:
