Photographer Peter Turnley has been pretty much everywhere. As an internationally recognized photojournalist, he covered major world events from the mid-1980s up to the early 2000s. In the process, he found himself immersed in war and up-close-and-personal with human suffering. But he kept returning to one place as a refuge: Paris:
“Paris has offered for me an incredible balance. When I’m in Paris, I’m constantly reminded of how beautiful and wonderful and poetic life can be. I’ve always felt that if I had any justification to use a camera to shout about what is wrong with the world, it’s because I have such a profound belief that life can be wonderful.”
Following are some of the photos featured in Turnley’s new book “French Kiss – A Love Letter to Paris.”
