Paris as we know has been a city with constant improvisation. However, we have hardly witnessed the development that has taken place over here since 1871. So, to revive the old memories of this beautiful city, Julien Knez from Paris has collected vintage photographs and collaged it with the photographs of some of the iconic spots of the city. These photographs showcase Paris contemporary setting. Let’s check out the album:
