Hugo's Paris

Bash the French all you want: they remain the luckiest people on earth for having Paris and its cobblestones underfoot, and architecture’s Olympus all around. We’re lucky to have the appropriately named Hugo, a 37-year-old who may or may not be Parisian, take us on a walk through a city he loves to angle and surprise the way Woody Allen loves to do likewise to (and in) Manhattan. For Hugo, no gargoyle is too mighty to flirt with, no light too furtive to catch at its most intimate. Paris may be a gray city. Through Hugo’s eyes it is eternally sunny, even at night.
