Selected as one of the Best Books of 2013 by Alec Soth

Paris in my time presents work culled from several extended trips that the artist made to Paris over a twenty-five year period. Paris was where his mother was born and raised, giving Steinmetz a special connection to, and familiarity with, the city. In the streets, parks, and along the Seine, Steinmetz plays with the conventions of the Paris photographic tradition, from Atget to Kertész. The work is classical, but with a modern feel that both updates the tradition and follows the path Steinmetz has set with his other books. Beautifully printed on uncoated Japanese stock with Nazraeli's exclusive “Daido black” ink.

"After I proclaimed last year that “pretty much any book by Steinmetz is guaranteed a spot on my top 10 list”, I was concerned when I heard the title of his new book. Who needs more classic photographs of Paris? But Steinmetz is just too good a photographer to let this stand in the way. Every single picture negates my preconceptions." — Alec Soth

"Yet another volume of black and white gems from the quiet master of quotidian revery. Steinmetz ventures into the city of cliché and somehow escapes with a clutch of original visions." — Blake Andrews
