Paris, Métro, Photo

From 1900 to nowadays

Since the beginning of its construction, the Paris Metro has been abundantly photographed. A technical feat, a key element of the Parisian landscape and a part of its architectural heritage, the Metro is also a gateway, a meeting point and a stage for all the actors of the urban theatre. No wonder this unique landscape has been an inspiration for French as well as the world's greatest photographers.
The book published by Actes Sud illustrates the great epic of the Métropolitain.

Close to 50 of the photographs presented are from the collections of the City of Paris, Roger-Viollet and partners.
