The Glow of Paris: The Bridges of Paris at Night

Adult; History & Military; (Market)

The Glow of Paris is an eclectic collection of extraordinary gelatin-silver photographic prints of the bridges of Paris – nighttime images that are breathtaking. Accompanied by a fascinating historical portrayal, the book presents a unique and aesthetic vision of Paris because no one else has ever photographed and written about the bridges that cross the Seine in this way. “For the most part Parisians take these architectural wonders for granted, relying on their functionality to get them where they want to go each day,” says author Zuercher. “They don’t appreciate the beauty because most don’t see the glow of the bridges at night. And most have forgotten that from Julius Caesar to Princess Diana, the bridges of Paris have played in important role in history.” The fascinating narrative that accompanies the artistic black and white photos includes historical facts and little known tidbits about the bridge
Reviews
Bob Bishop Editor/Publisher Paris Voice

With stunning black and white photos in the Ansel Adams tradition and stories about Paris' legendary bridges this is a real Paris book gem.

Carol Cain Emmy-winning journalist CBS/Detroit Free Press

Through the incredible prism of his lens, Gary Zuercher has captured  the beauty of Paris and its exquisite bridges at night through black and white photographs that are works of  art in their own right.  This book will simply dazzle and delight those who love Paris.

David M. Seager, Art Director National Geographic Society Washington, DC

This book presents sumptuous photographs of the great bridges of Paris in all their nocturnal splendor, glowing and poetic. You can almost hear the gentle lap of the Seine. A must for collectors of fine photography.

Phillip Dennis Cate Curator Special Exhibits, Musée Montmartre, Paris

Gary Zuercher's approach of depicting Paris bridges at night is a truly unique aesthetic vision of the city. His manipulation of the camera, playing with shadow and light effects, isolates and elevates these important architectural symbols of Paris far beyond their daily, prosaic function.
