In the footsteps of George Brassaï and with a beautiful model on her side, French photographer Véronique Vial leads us through Paris at night. The contrast between nocturnal shadows and imperial illuminations, between the architecture in stone and the flesh of the body creates a mesmerizing play of voyeurism and exhibitionism, with Paris as the fitting, magical stage.
