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 Delano, mayor of Paris

In Paris: Women & Bicycles, acclaimed photographer Gil Garcetti Garcetti (Iron: Erecting the Walt Disney Concert Hall) focuses his attention on the head-turning sight of women as they ride their bicycles through the scenic streets of Paris. Dressed with a quintessential French flair, Parisian women of all ages commute to work, run errands, meet friends for coffee, catch a movie, or go to the theater. Through snow, rain, and summer heat they eschew cars, doing their part to clear the air in the city of light.


Gil Garcetti is a photographer and former Los Angeles County District Attorney. Paris: Women & Bicycles will be his sixth book of photography published since he left office in 2001. Gil has had solo exhibitions at many prestigious venues including at the United Nations, New York, the National Building Museum, Washington DC and the Millennium Art Museum, Beijing. In 2003, American Photo, named Gil one of the country's four master photographers.

He lives Los Angeles, California.
