American expat and acclaimed photographer Ami Sioux has published her second book PARIS 48˚49N 2˚29E. This eclectic mixture of photos gives the audience an insider's impression of Ami's adopted home...and just in case you were wondering, the numbers correlate to the longitude and
latitude of the city, just check a map or Google to see for yourself.

Ami engaged fifty friends and strangers to hand draw maps of various spots in Paris that held significant meaning for them. Guided by the map alone, she set out on a treasure hunt of sorts to find the perfect picture associated with each diagram.

The reader is allowed to join Ami on her quest for the perfect photo by viewing the drawn map on the left adjacent to the corresponding picture on the right side of each page.

Capture the essence of Paris from the vantage point of an artist. From Notre Dame to visiting 'John le Dinosaure' there is something for everyone. Enjoy The City of Light with the ease of a flip of a page or better yet take the book with you to discover each of the treasured shots in person.

Thank you for reading and bonne journée.
