A Virtual Tour of Paris, or the Tips of its Landmarks, Anyway

For her Head in the Clouds series, NYC-based photographer Kaitlin Rebesco took a "less is more" approach to rendering Paris' most iconic structures, cropping out all but the tippy top 5 percent (or so) of each building. Interestingly enough, depicting only the crowning details of every landmark makes every over-photographed scene—Notre Dame, I. M. Pei's Louvre pyramid (above), La Samaritaine, and more—fresh, with every visible detail a bit more enchanting. Of course, seeing blue skies and puffy clouds in a city that seems so often gray with cloud cover only bolsters the photos' mood-buoying powers. More photos, below.
