The photograph has not been retouched in any way. It
was taken from a balcony located in the heart of the Marais quarter in
Paris, offering an exceptional perspective. It shows an invisible,
inaccessible Paris hidden in the heights of the city.
60 different photographs compose the set "Ciel Mon Paris" (Sky of Paris).
