Lintels of Paris

Text by: Peter Edwards

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.
