“Paris has more than 600 ‘impasses’: streets that come to a dead end. Cul-de-sacs. And that is without counting the hundreds of cités, villas and squares. Within the Périphérique, Paris is the most densely populated city in Europe, with more than 20,000 inhabitants per square kilometre. The photographs offer a glimpse of part of Paris that usually goes unnoticed. 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.
The photobook PARIS IMPASSE by Karin Borghouts and graphic designer Jean-Michel Meyers was shortlisted for the LUMA RENCONTRES DUMMY AWARD 2019 in ARLES, France.
The photography book Paris Impasse will be published in fall 2020.
