Streets of Paris · MENDO

As one of Europe’s most vibrant cities for art, fashion, and culture, it’s challenging to capture the multifaceted city of Paris from the perspective of one lens. Therefore, Streets of Paris bundles the work of 37 photographers, both Paris natives and visitors alike, who roam the thousands of Parisian “rues” to capture multiple points of view. When combined, their independent visual voices show an unprecedented collection of Paris images. Unique views of the city’s Haussmann architecture and famous landmarks like 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 wide-eyed love for “la Ville Lumière.”

  • Streets of Paris is another edition in the Streets of… series of books that gathers the personal visions of a favorite metropolis by multiple photographers
  • 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


A teNeues | MENDO publication

At the heart of MENDO is the love of pure design. Before establishing the inspirational concept store and go-to flagship bookstore for style-conscious bibliophiles in Amsterdam in 2002, founders Roy Rietstap and Joost Albronda were accomplished graphic designers with an eye for innovation and entrepreneurship. Thus, a brilliant retail concept was created in the form of the MENDO of today. The collaboration of teNeues x MENDO is a synergy on many levels—a premier international publisher of illustrated books on culture combining with trendsetting designers with a great love for beautiful, asthetically-minded books— housed in a one-of-a-kind global bookstore. If you look closely, you will see that the simple, elegant black walls are actually made of precise stacks of books—an idea that is typical Amsterdam!
