Eyes on Paris shows how artists engaged in photography (French and immigrants alike) saw, experienced and captured Paris with the camera. The artists' gaze oscillates between documentary interest and subjective perception, a chronicler's duty and the projection of personal feelings.
Around 400 photographic works by important representatives of 20th-century photography enter into a dialog with epoch-making books, portfolios or rare portfolio works. After all, no other city in the world has been the subject of as many outstanding publications as has Paris: from Atget to Van der Elsken, from Robert Doisneau to William Klein. Curated by Hans-Michael Koetzle (Munich) and Ingo Taubhorn (Deichtorhallen Hamburg) In Eyes on Paris the 130 best books from 1890 to 2010 are documented in a unique picture book that was awarded the 'Gold 2012 German Photo Book Prize' .
