Here’s a little story behind the creation of “Les Portes de Paris,” our most popular print ever.
It begins many years ago, with one of our first strolls together through Paris. We came upon an enormous blue door in Saint Germain, of the type that once swung wide to allow horses and carriages to clatter into the hidden courtyard. The arched panels, the graceful stone surround and the rusty door knocker utterly captivated us and we were hooked. Since then, we have been fascinated with the colors, the intricate wood carvings, the history, the elegance and the sheer number of unique doors and entrances in Paris. They are a major feature of the city and it’s impossible to walk down a street in Paris without stopping and marveling at these architectural works of art. Over the years, we have amassed an image collection of many hundreds of them, each stylish and interesting. And we had the idea to share a group of them as a visual celebration of their beauty. Choosing only 100 to include in this print took months of careful consideration, and the final choices were then painstakingly organized by color, shape and design. The result is a unique photographic poster for everyone who loves Paris. “Les Portes de Paris ” is available as a print or as a gallery wrapped canvas. Swipe through the album to see a few details, but to experience the full impact of the image in a large preview, visit the link in our profile.
