Photo by @williamalbertallard 
In 2013 while doing an essay for National Geographic on central Paris, which was indeed, that night, the City of Light. The laps of water were crowned with brilliance and raindrops were scattered like diamonds on the roof of the dinner boat Le Calife.

As we slowly eased past the Eiffel Tower, a woman paused in her staircase descent to gaze up at the icon draped in gold. It's seldom one gets an opportunity to photograph something so often depicted and yet manage to create something of a different vision. I perhaps immodestly consider this a masterpiece from my work in a place I love.

As part of @natgeocreative Flash Sale, I am offering this signed print for $100. Visit the link in my profile to purchase.

I've discovered some images from an essay I did in 2008 for National Geographic magazine on New York City's vanishing garment district, a story never published in the U.S. edition of Geographic although several of the foreign editions ran it. The garment district, a neighborhood that once had streets flooded with racks of clothes being pushed about and hundreds of thousands of manufacturing workers, has dimmed considerably but there are still designers and clothes makers continuing the tradition. I found myself haunting some of the fashion shows by garment district designers. I didn't go out to photograph models on the runway very much but more often wandered about the backstage areas, the dressing areas where makeup artists and hair stylists, manicurists, helpers of all kinds, applied their talents to so many young and often reed-slender women of various hues. It was a pleasure to witness the chaos of beauty evolving and displayed and trying to take that visual chaos and make order of it in single images. While watching a lovely, long-haired  woman having her hair braided, I couldn't help but think of the 16th Century Italian Early Renaissance painter Sandro Bottecilli whose subjects often had long hair, sometimes elaborately braided. And some of Bottecilli's beauties, as was the case with this girl, had in their tresses a hint of auburn, that rarest, I think, of hair colors. How wonderfully it graces the soft shape of her face. I can imagine her transported to another place in another time. I wonder where she is now. Photograph by @williamalbertallard @thephotosociety#hair#fashion#garmentdistrict#newyorkcity#auburn#braids
