  • Gösta Wilander's colourful Paris
    Gösta Wilander's colourful Paris

    Born in Göteborg in Sweden at the end of the 19th century, Gösta Wilander came to Paris in 1919 to learn French, promptly fell in love with the French Capital and married a Parisian. This amateur photographer, employed by the Swedish Consulate by day, experimented with coulour photography, making Paris his principal object. A tireless walker as well as a keen observer, Gösta Wilander produced a humorous and colourful 'street photography', capturing snapshots of Parisian life from 1958 until his death in 1982. The Société Française de Photographie honored him with a medal in 1967. Held in the Musée Carnavalet collections, a selection of his photographs has recently been digitised by Parisienne de Photographie.
