PARIS 48°49N 2°29E

These maps have been drawn by Parisians who were asked to give directions to a place in Paris that is significant or important to them personally, for any reason.
Freelance photographer Ami Sioux is the creator behind PARIS 48°49N 2°29E, a book portraying a side of the city as interpreted by those who live and work in it every day. “It’s not a ‘guide’ to the new café or club, but rather, a unique way of discovering different parts of the city.” Her photographs represent each of the 50 map locations drawn for her by Parisians. PARIS 48°49N 2°29E is the second in its series, which began in Berlin, where on various occasions, people had handed Ami a hand drawn map of directions to a party or to their house rather than a street address as East Berlin was still being rebuilt.

Some of you Parisphiles reading may have a secret spot or two in common and for others, these locations might just be where memories are waiting to be born.

I absolutely love this book and have just contacted the author to buy.
