    Paris has about 600 impasses, cités, villas and squares: streets that come to a dead end. Cul-de-sacs, as they used to be called in French and are still called in English. Within the Périphérique, Paris is the most densely populated city in Europe, with more than 20,000 inhabitants per square kilometre. This book depicts about 200 cul-de-sacs from the 1st to the 20th arrondissement for the first time. The photographs offer a glimpse of part of Paris that usually goes unnoticed.

    The photobook PARIS IMPASSE by Karin Borghouts and graphic designer Jean-Michel Meyers was shortlisted for the LUMA RENCONTRES DUMMY AWARD 2019 at Les Rencontres de la photographie, Arles, France.

    The photographs are taken from 2011 to 2019. Most of them during an artist-in-residence period in fall 2015, thanks to the Flemish Government.
