Gary Zuercher/ The Glow of Paris: The Bridges of Paris at Night


Subject: Gary Zuercher’s award-winning coffee-table book, The Glow of Paris: The

Bridges of Paris At Night, bridges us – culturally, architecturally, and

historically – to perhaps the world’s artistically richest city. Over a period of

five years, he took his camera out into the Parisian night to capture stunningly

evocative images of the bridges that span the Seine. Using his trained eye and

sophisticated photographic technique, he created these glorious black-and-white

photographs, rich with detail and possessing a clear, luminous quality. Not

content with just creating these beautiful images, he undertook painstaking

research into the history of the bridges, the results of which deepen our

understanding of their significance.
