Paris 9 A.M.
An attempt to avoid tourists and some clichés
"J'adore Paris!" 

Thisphrase is typically followed by a romantic swoon. As one cliché goes, Paris isthe most romantic city in the world. While this is arguable, the fact lies thatParis is one of the most visited cities in the world (or indeed the most). Thissimply translates to having a scarily high number of tourists.

And, this truth has a strong handin the conception of this photo series. How could one take pictures of Paris withas minimal number of tourists in the pictures as possible? How does one avoidpresenting the clichés of this magnificent city in his or her photographs?

9 A.M. is the cutoff time for the followingphotographs. It is when the sun's morning glory starts to wane, and when thetourist flock starts to appear.... or so one thinks.
