‘Urban Nomads is the first book about an upcoming and hard-to-define new lifestyle. It sheds a light on possible new ways of living, working, cooking, and medical care in an age of increasing flexibility. The book is a huge catalogue of movable micro buildings and well-designed solutions for on-the-go living experiences, all based around themes like instant housing, instant cooking, instant exhibition, and instant help.’
Les Catacombes - Paris 2012
400 ft below the surface of Paris exists one of the scariest and coolest places on earth. The bones of over 6 million people are still interred here. Now they are organized and placed respectfully, but in the beginning the officials of Paris were just cleaning up the surface of the city by dumping the remains from full graveyards into the old rock quarries that built the city. Spooky! Great place to pop the question to your girlfriend!
All of the photos in this set were long exposures with no flash. If you ever get to go, don’t forget the remote and/or tripod!
