This photograph had me at hello, somewhere midway through my morning scroll on Pinterest. I’m always lured in by photos of the Petite Ceinture, the abandoned inner city railway of Paris, a surviving relic of a bygone era, closed since 1934 (you can take a tour with me at the end of this post if you’re curious). I clicked to find the author of the photograph which led me to discover the colossal work of Thibaud Poirier– and I say colossal because Thibaud has a knack for stepping back and taking a look at the bigger picture…
If you’re into photography, you’re probably curious to know what camera and lens the Parisian uses. Thibaud mostly works with a Canon 6D and the 17mm and 24mm TS-E lenses. “This allows me to control perspective for architectural shots and to create undistorted panoramas with optimal image quality”.
My website doesn’t do his colossal photos justice so I highly recommend you take it all in on his Tumblr. You can also follow his work on Instagram.
Oh and here’s that tour of the Petite Ceinture I promised you.
