A young man wearing a classic newsboy’s cap peers out from a newsstand at the edge of park. This scene could not be more quintessentially Parisian. You can almost hear him shouting the headlines to attract customers, though in this image his puckered face echoes the folds of his cap; perhaps he’s striking a serious pose for the photographer. The artist documented thousands of places in Paris, trying to capture the essence of the city before modernity overtook its timeless beauty. This image shows a scene, which like the blurry newspaper headline at lower right, captures a moment in time that will never exist again.
