Photography by Gil Garcetti
PARIS: WOMEN & BICYCLES
For nearly three years, Gil Garcetti, has been photographing women riding bicycles in Paris. Women of all ages, smartly dressed, use bicycles to get to work, to visit friends, to go shopping, go to the movies or the opera, and even to funerals. The weather is never an impediment these women ride in the snow, the rain and the heat. With evocative urban imagery and lush color, this book will inspire readers to leave their cars for their bikes wherever they may need to go with Parisian flair. This book is one component of a community bicycling initiative in Southern California.

“These days, bicycles are as much a part of the image of Paris as the Eiffel Tower. Through his photographs, Gil Garcetti captures fleeting figures; silhouettes that appear suddenly, turn a street corner and then disappear on the horizon. With an artist’s eye, he goes beyond documentation and creates a delicate mosaic of our city on bicycles. This elegant work is at once tribute and testimony to the mix of commonplace and extraordinary featured on its pages.” 

                   Bertrand Delanoë, Mayor of Paris
