PORTRAITS DE VILLES

The heart of cities has a different rhythm depending on the person looking at them.

Portraits de Villes invites you to listen to cities’s rhythm through the heart of an artist. These rare moments are like collectible postcards. 

In 2007, be-poles created an editorial department with a collection of travel notebooks entitled Portraits de Villes. Four cities, four photographers, four portraits. The beginning of a long voyage. A precious one. Adhering to its own typographic culture which combines elegance and simplicity, equilibrium and homothety, precision in details and proportions, be-poles is adding its contribution to the book of photographs.

The guest artist is offered a carte blanche to illustrate the city 
of his/her choice. Each Portraits de Villes is an unique journey led by the singular vision of the artist who has been chosen for the richness and sensitivity of his vocabulary.
