The melancholy, urban parable of a forfeited Prince...
07-JUN-2007 Marisa

The melancholy, urban parable of a forfeited Prince...

Paris (France)

Mysterious decline of a former French-Italian restaurant, called “The Prince”, which was proud of its mussels and chips.
Now, like a human homeless, it is all wrapped up in old newspapers and torn poster to keep warm or simply to hide itself from reality.
Nevertheless its dilapidated essence has a strange beauty.


Tomorrow we’ll leave Paris.
I need lighter horizons.

...oui, Marisa, une étrange beauté, vers laquelle votre oeil nous guide. Vraiment bravo pour votre vision de la France et vos légendes inspirées.

Looks very much like a New York street.

Modern yet somehow timeless.
