Un Livre - Une Image in Paris is by far my favorite store on rue Alexandre Dumas in the 11th arrondissement. I can’t help but be drawn by it every time I walk by. The owner, Emmanuelle Fructus, has been in the business of collecting old black and white photographs for the past 20 years. She says you can count on your fingers the amount of true collectors of vintage photographs here in France, not more than ten, that’s how few they are. She opened her shop a few years ago to buy and sell old photographs. She also has a selection of old color photographs as well as Polaroids. You will also find rare and limited edition books as well as some fun tote bags. Average prices for 4x6 prints range from 10 to 50 Euros. She is usually open in the afternoon on week days but can also be seen by appointment. Her opening hours are flexible so it is safer to call before heading there.

“In this first major retrospective in France, Jeu de Paume presents a selection of two hundred photographs that affords an opportunity to explore the origins, scope, and aspirations of a wholly original force in photography. It includes all of the artist’s iconic photographs as well as many that have never been publicly exhibited. Even the earliest examples of her work demonstrate Arbus’s distinctive sensibility through the expression on a face, someone’s posture, the character of the light, and the personal implications of objects in a room or landscape. These elements, animated by the singular relationship between the photographer and her subject, conspire to implicate the viewer with the force of a personal encounter.”

The kid store lulu & cie in Paris has a wonderful selection of toys, decorative objects and other stylish gadgets.
It is one of my favorite boutique in the marché d’Aligre neighborhood. Everything at lulu & cie has been selected with great taste, from the traditional wooden toys to the postcards.
