The Paris Color Project
The project began in January, 2009 when we moved to Paris. I randomly began shooting photographs in a similar palette and shared them on my blog daily. I had no idea at the time that it would blossom into a three-year project that is chronicled here.
I’m consistently drawn to the way color contrasts Paris’ neutral facades, the way layers of paint erode into a form of abstract art, and to the details that are often overshadowed by iconic landmarks. The photos offer candid glimpses of the thoughtful craftsmanship, pedestrian pleasures and gracefully worn textures that cumulatively capture the unmistakable charm of Paris. - Nichole Robertson
Paris in Color
“Paris in Color” by Nichole Robertson is a compilation of photos from The Paris Color Project. It was released in April 2012 and became an Amazon best seller. It’s currently available in bookstores and boutiques worldwide including Anthropologie, Shakespeare & Company and the Musee d’Orsay.
From Chronicle: “An orange café chair, bright blue bicycles against a fence, a weathered white door—Nichole Robertson’s sumptuous photographs of the distinctive details of Paris evoke a sense of serendipitous discovery and celebrate the city as never before. At once a work of art and a window into the heart of the city, Paris in Color will surprise and delight those who love art, design, color, and, of course, Paris!”
