PARALLEL PARIS 1st edition


This is the first edition of the book Parallel Paris by Maurits Peeters. The book consists of a photo essay on the Parisian suburbs.

The book results from a year of roaming around Paris' banlieues and capturing the stark and alienated scenery that makes up their surroundings. The name follows the book's concept: facing the parallel reality of Paris that lives alongside the romanticized version for which she is known globally. 

This book aims to continue to shed light on Paris' suburbs and provide another frame. One through which we measure our relation to the banlieues of Paris, which are a crucial part of the city's true identity.
