Colorful Paris Storefronts And Owners Tell The City’s True Story

Colorful Paris Storefronts And Owners Tell The City's True Story

Rather than searching for historic sites across the city, photographer Sebastian Erras has resorted to the enormous diversity of Parisian shops to convey the story of one of the world’s most renowned cities.

Erras’ concept became a project called Paris Re-tale, in which he filmed the bright shops and their happy owners, who aren’t lacking in color themselves, thanks to his collaboration with Pixartprinting.

Sebastian isn’t the only person to find a unique way to communicate his experience. He captured the enormous range of floor tiles in Paris and Barcelona before the Paris Re-tale.
