‘Over Paris is an ongoing photography project by photographer Alain Cornu, who brings his 4 × 5 large format field camera onto rooftops around the Paris for views of the city at night. Cornu has spent nearly a decade adding photos to the series. Many of the images show famous landmarks in Paris, often far in the distance. The Eiffel Tower can be seen in several of the images.’
Cornu uses a Toyo Field 45AII field camera, 150mm Schneider Apo Symmar lens, and Kodak Portra 160 film. Each photo typically takes about 5 minutes to expose.
An online exhibition can be seen here.
