Images & Portraits

    If you are passing through Paris' Marais district, specifically around the Marché des Enfants Rouges on Rue de Bretagne, pay a visit to Images & Portraits, a quaint and compact shop space overflowing with owner Fabien Breuvart's principal stock-in-trade: unique and intriguing vintage photographs. The shop has been here since Breuvart shifted his interests from his own photographic career to the selection and sale of the kind of one-off snaps characteristic of Parisian vintage markets and antiques stands. Indeed, the owner spends time meticulously combing such markets for the best selection of prints to present in his store. The shots range from scenes of the previous century, through to the late nineties. All of his selections capture valuable and honest moments, and more often than not, will leave the viewer questioning the story that lies behind the photograph. The shop space itself resembles a kind of charming shoebox of images and camera equipment, each surface alive with visual information. Breuvart also aims to recreate the vintage feel of these shots with a personalized portrait service offered to his clientele in the studio corner of the shop space. With one end of the store opening onto Rue Charlot, and the other backing onto the Marché des Enfants Rouges, this little business is a charming and intriguing example of the atmosphere offered around the area.Show lessRead more
