Paris, hier et aujourd'hui

The book

Editions du Chêne (Réédition).

A Paris that some have not known , others have forgotten, many of whom remember with nostalgia. And then Paris today , dense , high contrast, fascinating. Paris of yesterday and today parallels the aerial photographs of Paris taken by Roger Henrard in the fifties , mostly unpublished , and those , current , Yann Arthus -Bertrand . Besides the high aesthetic quality of these documents, the book brings back the upheavals in the planning of the capital for nearly a half century. We thus discover , throughout the twenty arrondissements , the Louvre and the kings of the Louvre pyramid , metal Baltard pavilions central Halles - " the belly of Paris " - and the sprawling Forum 80 , the former chemical plants Front Seine and the ultra- modern residential buildings , slaughterhouses de la Villette and the cities of Science and Music and many other sites to dramatic changes.
