"Grand Portrait de Ville" 

Reynald Philippe's Ode to New York

Continuing the legacy of Ateliers Saint Lazare's (A.S.L) acclaimed series "Portraits de Villes," Reynald Philippe has been invited to contribute to its intriguing new chapter, "Grand Portrait de Ville." Presented in a novel format – a coffee table book measuring 22 x 28 cm with a hardbound cover – this collection reimagines the relationship between the city and the artist. In this context, the artist isn't embarking on a journey of discovery, as the city is already familiar to them. It's a city they have long explored and connected with, sometimes by birth or through a deep emotional bond, creating a unique and personal link.

In this captivating edition, Reynald invites us into his personal experience of New York – a city with which he has deeply intertwined over the years. His lens captures the everyday rhythm of this iconic metropolis, focusing on moments that have resonated with him. Accompanying these compelling images are Reynald's own thoughts and musings, reflecting the vibrant pulse and essence of New York.
