It's not an official TOP print sale, but our friend Peter Turnley is having a holiday sale of the most popular of his fine art prints of Paris, at significantly discounted prices.
The selection is broader than it has been in our sales, and includes several new images. See the pictures.
If you're one of the many people who have ordered one of these fine prints through us in the past, I don't have to tell you that they make outstanding gifts. The prints are expertly crafted archival pigment inkjet prints using the very finest materials. The image quality is outstanding and the LE (life expectancy) of the physical prints is likely to be measured in the hundreds of years. And they'll be beautifully packaged. Just add wrapping paper.
Peter has generously offered to share a bit of his profit if you indicate you heard about the sale from TOP (there's a drop-down menu at the bottom of the sale page.)
The grand tradition
I have the new picture reproduced above, and the older print of the French gentleman reading a newspaper in a bistro is prominently displayed on my kitchen/dining room wall, effectively in the very middle of my house.
Peter has lived in Paris for more than 40 years, using it as his base for his top-level photojournalism career. His romantic and beautiful Paris work, which he deliberately undertook as an antidote to having to photograph (and witness) war and suffering the world over, embodies his humanity, goodwill, and fellow-feeling—all that is right and beautiful about humanity. It is part of the great tradition of the romantic street photographers of Paris that includes Willy Ronis, Brassaï, André Kertesz, his friends and colleagues Robert Doisneau and Henri Cartier-Bresson, and his late good friend and mentor Édouard Boubat.
