You may remember Sebastian’s brilliant photo series that focus on the floors of London. Now Sebastian Erras has collaborated with a print company “Pixartprinting”, to realize the ‘Paris Re-Tale’, a project which tells the story of City of Lights through its colourful shopfronts. Erras captures the exquisite beauty of Parisian little storefronts, with each image featuring the photos and stories of each shop and its owner. Their workshops, laboratories and boutiques tell a different tale of the city.
Oh how I would love to stroll those streets and be able to sit inside the shops. Smell the air and just soak in the life style. Thanks for sharing.

You have to admit that Paris is tres cool…once, long ago, I was offered a free stay there if I would write seriously…I couldn’t give up my 9-5 job at the time, so regretfully declined…and now I don’t think I will ever go…so seeing what I missed is a bitter-sweet visual treat….thanks for this, Alk3r!
Beautiful – I can just imagine strolling down the street and seeing these picturesque storefronts…wandering in for some wine and cheese, or having a fresh baguette…wonderful photos, here.
However, such charm is not the domain of Paris alone… The more one explores France, the more treasures they unearth!

These photographs of storefronts and storekeepers in Paris are beautiful!
I have lived in Paris for four years. Indeed, some magasins/ charcuteries/libraires/cafes/boulangeries like these exist just off the tourist beaten track, but chainstores are prevalent too. Having worked in paris, most of the time one barely had time to visit Monoprix/Franxprix etc, but one can still buy a baguette, still warm, to have with diner au soir. Ca me manque.
Amazing photos – thank you for sharing! 🙂
Love it! wish I were there!
Gorgeous photos. such a shame that we did away with so many of those lovely shop fascias or covered them up. Thanks for this lovely insight into Paris shops!
These beautiful quirky graceful and character full places are a joy to the eyeballs
