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.
