An unprecedented collection of images from the City of Light A refreshing update of the ‘classic’ Paris photo book by featuring photographers with a strong internet following As one of Europe’s most important and vibrant cities for art, fashion, and culture, in general, it is difficult to capture the multifaceted city of Paris from the perspective of merely one lens. Therefore, Streets of Paris bundles the work of over 40 photographers who roam the thousands of Parisian ‘rues’ to capture multiple, contemporary points of view of this dynamic world capital. The photographers, both Paris natives and international visitors alike, often draw on their strong social media presence. When combined, their independent visual voices show an unprecedented collection of Paris images. Unique views of the city’s famous landmarks like the Sacré-Coeur, the Louvre Museum, and the Eiffel Tower reveal an evocative city portrait. Lively areas overflowing with art and fashion, as well as lesser-known impressions of the city’s banlieues, are all captured with a present- day attention to detail and a wide-eyed love for “la Ville Lumière.”

Air Chief Marshal Sir Richard Johns was commissioned at the RAF College Cranwell in 1959 after completing flying training on Piston Provost and Meteor aircraft. Following nine years service as an operational fast-jet pilot, primarily on the Harrier, he commanded both a Harrier squadron and the Harrier Force in Germany, then became a qualified flying instructor during which time he taught The Prince of Wales to wings standard. A succession of national and NATO senior appointments followed, culminating in his promotion to Chief of the Air Staff and Air ADC to the Queen. On retirement in April 2000, he became Constable and Governor of Windsor Castle. A past chairman of the Board of Trustees of the RAF Museum, he is now president of the RAF Historical Society. His illustrious career gave him the privilege of a rare, if not singular, perspective of the RAF, our sister services and national defence matters, witnessing a steady decline in the combat power of the UK’s armed forces as financial management took precedence over identifying strategic priorities and maintaining the vital skill-set of service personnel. His views are forensic and forthright, balanced and thought-provoking and this autobiography should be essential reading for anyone interested in the development of Allied air power over the last fifty years.
