Vintage of Paris by Paul Almásy

Paul AlmásyLate Hungarian photojournalist Paul Almásy traveled across the globe, capturing images of people from all walks of life around the world. Over the course of his career, which spanned more than 60 years, Almásy spent multiple decades documenting the intimate and quaint beauty of Paris and its people. His images are an ode to the city, bearing the photographer’s own love for Parisian culture and lifestyle.

The photographer’s joyful and romantic portraits reveal a sense of life that Parisians in the mid-20th century lived—one filled with simple, daily pleasures. From youths merrily playing instruments and dancing in public parks and streets to older couples taking a moment to get lost in each other’s eyes, there’s an undeniable air about the city of love that transcends time.
