Photography Book Paris Impasse

Karin Borghouts started photographing some dead-end streets in Paris as early as 2011. Later, as artist-in-residence in Paris, she photographed hundreds of cul-de-sacs or impasses. Watch this video.

The book Paris Impasse is being printed now! This book is an initiative of graphic designer Jean-Michel Meyers and Karin Borghouts. The prototype was nominated in 2019 for the Luma Rencontres Dummy Book Award at Les Rencontres d'Arles in France, the most important photo festival in Europe.
