Paris Metro Photo: The Moulin Rouge By Night

"After traveling through these 300-some stations, after journeying on these different lines, after embracing these 116 years of history (of Paris, of the Metro and of photography), one can't help but be struck by the extraordinary fertility and inexhaustible richness of a subject that has become invisible, so familiar is it to Parisians. We need the eye of the photographer to remind us of its diversity and singularity, its graphic elegance and geometric rigor, its shadows and lights, its perpetual movement, reflections, joys, sufferings, tragedies, its violence too, sometimes. Each period reveals a thousand different aspects, reflects its era, possesses its specificities, while at the same time foretelling certain trends and following others. From 1900 to 2016, shared traits come to light. Universal, they travel through the century, conveying a constant interest in certain aspects of the photographic, beyond schools, tendencies or fashions." – Julien Faure-Conorton, Paris Metro Photo. Featured image, "Moulin Rouge and Métro," is by Christian Sappa, 1995.
