A curated selection of 60 vintage photographs by the French photographer André Ostier
A selection of the Ostier images have never been published before
Paris, Before it is Too Late is a curated selection of 60 vintage photographs by the French photographer André Ostier. Spanning the career of Ostier from his days in Paris during World War II to the 1960s and 1970s, the striking images capture the City of Light through his eyes and instill a certain sense of nostalgia. The famous fashion photographer, known for his work with the couturier Christian Dior, sought to document a fleeting Old Paris by capturing its people, buildings, and the special moments of the city he so admired. Part of the book is a replica of an album Ostier put together himself, Paris, Before it is Too Late. Uniquely, this book also includes a specially curated selection of rare and haunting images that Ostier took during the war.
