10/30/14 Shaira Luna’s Perspective on Paris – A Series on the City
Paris never runs out of ways to beguile. No matter the multitude of greats who’ve passed through and documented it, the city knows to manipulate one’s art to reveal itself anew.
Visiting the city to shoot a clothing campaign recently, photographer Shaira Luna couldn’t help training her lens on some interesting folk on the street. “Everyone’s a character there,” she says, alluding to photos she took of a handsome gang of bikers and a grumpy yet distinguished elderly gentleman she met at a café.
In the series she shares with NOUS, Luna depicts a warmth and intimacy with the city despite the cool fall weather and such fleeting encounters with her subjects. We can only imagine the results if the photographer’s charmed perspective were to remain longer in the city.
