Meet the Humans

Every day, a new portrait !

The book Humans of Paris

The diversity of the French capital city at your fingertips.

It is the result

of more than three years of wanderings and encounters.

Marco is the co-founder of the Humans of Paris community, and posts every day (or close to) a new portrait of a Parisian. The book Humans of Paris gathers more than 450 previously unpublished pictures, each with an anecdote, story, ou dialogue born out of the encounter between the photographer and its subjects.

It is a real (re)discovery of Paris through the faces of its inhabitants. As a whole, it paints a vibrant image of the capital city, and proves wrong the preconcieved ideas about Parisians. Beyond the stereotypes, we are all humans…
