{book} Rose, c'est Paris

Photographer Bettina Rheims and writer Serge Bramly's Rose, c'est Paris is a box set of a photobook and a feature-length film on DVD.  From Taschen Books, "This extraordinary work of art, in two different but interlocking and complimentary formats, defies easy categorization. For in this multi-layered opus of poetic symbolism, photographer Bettina Rheims and writer Serge Bramly evoke the City of Light in a completely novel way: this is a Paris of surrealist visions, confused identities, artistic phantoms, unseen manipulation, obsession, fetish, and seething desire."
