Overview

A CBC New Brunswick Book List Selection

Thaddeus Holownia’s Lintels of Paris provides a taste of the urban qualities of Paris, its quartiers, and its exquisite architectural details. Working with his trusted large-format banquet camera, Holownia has completed a series of horizontal portraits of carved stone lintels sitting atop the large doorways that line the streets and sidewalks of France’s capital. This large-format volume, featuring over 40 stochastic duotones, offers an unexpected tour of one of the defining features of the "City of Light. " Lintels of Paris accompanies an exhibition of the same name running throughout 2020 at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery.
