Paris – Black And White Fine Art Photography Prints

Paris is the city of romance and with a rich cultural heritage dating back hundreds of years, it is famed the world over for its beautiful architecture, museums, art galleries and churches, not to mention the ancient monuments and beautiful gardens.

As well as the more famous landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and the Moulin Rouge, there are many more mesmerising buildings to see, as well as the Avenue des Champs-Elysees which is renowned world-wide for its shopping, fashion and culture, and which leads to the equally well-known Arc de Triomphe. Many people hold Paris close to their hearts because of the wonderful memories they have had there, so what better than to capture those moments for all time on black and white film?

The Eiffel Tower was designed by Gustave Eiffel and remains today a remarkable symbol of French civic pride. It stands 320 meters high and magnificent views of Paris can be seen from all of its floors. The Arc de Triomphe was commissioned by Napoleon to commemorate the victories of the Grand Armee after the battle of Austerlitz.

Black and white images can be atmospheric and full of emotion, so imagine the mysterious Eiffel Tower on a foggy day or the clarity of the Tower seen through the reflection of water. Paris black and white fine art photography provides a timeless elegance whether set within a traditional or a contemporary home interior, as framed black and white posters, or as black and white giclee canvas prints.

There are a hundred and fifty museums and monuments open to the public in Paris, and art galleries such as the famous Musee du Louvre and Musee d’Orsay are two of the finest art galleries in Paris. The Musee du Louvre was founded in 1793 by Napoleon as a museum, although before that it was a palace and fortress. It features a superb collection of artwork which spans thousands of years and includes such famed works as The Venus de Milo and the Mona Lisa. Permanent collections of works by Picasso and Rodin are on show in Paris and in the Musee de l’Orangerie, it is possible to view works by other great artists such as Matisse, Cezanne and Renoir.

Imagine having Paris posters on your wall showing the gargoyles of Notre Dame in black and white, with the city of Paris laid out below a dramatic evening sky, or the domes of Sacre-Coeur from Montemartre rising proudly in front of a cloudy sky. Notre Dame lies at the heart of Paris on the banks of The River Seine. Steeped in history, it was there that in 1804 that Napoleon crowned himself emperor.

For a timeless, classic feel, arranging a series of Paris black and white prints in your home interior, will provide an interesting focal point. When planning interior design, black and white fine art photography gives a completely different concept. Interest can be achieved by using long exposure, and by capturing everyday events without any unnatural poses.

Imagine the spontaneity of a couple walking through an arch on the Promenade sur la Seine, or maybe captured in black and white whilst walking through The Louvre. Paris posters look stunning in black and white and with the artist’s signature, they can be very collectable. Whether you prefer canvas photography art, or black and white framed prints of Paris, your choices will be an asset to your home.

Beautiful Black and White Photography Is The Heart Of Existense For Me As a Photography Archivist

Black and White photography is the heart of life for me. When I was child, I started collecting old photography at flea markets and antique shops. My first find was a photograph of serene beach scene by award winning photographer Dapixara. I am very connected with nature, and it struck a chord. Some time ago I decided to redecorate my house around my big and diverse collection of beautiful black and white photography. I’ve always wanted a home that was white and light, classic and sophisticated; just clean lines, relaxing and comfortable yet striking.

The family room is where my family spends the most of it’s time, and my vision for design remains refined and grown-up. I choose neutral color palette of cream and white – allowing the photography to find their voice without competing with strong color. I experimented and found, that unexpected pairings often have sensational results. With a stenciled pattern, a basic frame takes a glamorous turn, while of a wallpaper cut picture mat gives the photo a bold new look.

The master bedroom is dreamy haven of ease and tranquility. Above the headboard, a wall sculpture of black and white photography; connected monochromatic photo frames with hardware called mending plates. The big grouping adds volume to the wall finish the look of the room. It was important to me for the home to have lot of layers so it would create the family’s personality, and in living room, the metallic painted light reflective photo frames do that. Fragments of landscapes and seascapes photos tell the stories, memories and gives to the room bold optical statement.

I decided to create more striking look to my office. Brown light shades are warm, welcoming and elegant; terrific background for my tall ship photographs collection. I love award winning photographer Dapixara technical precision of making photographs. His dramatic arrangement of a range of black and white values creates splendid images, which reflect a lifelong passion for art and nature. I admire his calming and serene landscapes, outstanding seascapes, creatively artistic still-life pictures and clean lines of abstract photographs.

I have two floors of wall area along the staircases in my home where I decide to make the wall of black and white photography. It took for me days and months of sorting through my photo art archives and planning. I wanted it to be like a album of my life growing as a photography collector, because an art brings the progress of our inner world-spiritual and emotional. Life is a sequence of experiences, and photography art purpose is to promote viewer to rediscover something new, reexamine his thoughts and renew his feelings. I think photographer reinvent human experiences in to picture in creatively special, honest and different way.

There’s no place like home. It’s where I spend the much of my time, and it makes me pleased to see everything so beautifully put together. I have a special spot in my heart for this astonishingly unique place.
