Le Ventre de Paris

The Belly of Paris must always have been a place worth visiting. After the food market was dismantled, Les Halles became a gigantic shopping center. I have not seen it since the new construction began a few years ago.

In any case, the area is a place worth visiting without wallet. At some places, we cannot tell anymore whether we are inside or outside.

Architecture permeates everything, even the layout of the boutiques. The lady was not pleased with me taking the picture and called security. And this was in 1991.

Long passageways in almost black and white made me think of Alain Resnais.

Escaped, one wonders if Henri de Miller’s sculpture L’Écoute in front of the nearby church of St Eustace ever gets a quiet moment.
