Don’t be fooled by her youthfulness: Emma Le Doyen is an old Pigalle hand. Born locally, the granddaughter of a taxi driver, she has been taking pictures in the nearby 18th arrondissement since she was a teenager, documenting an environment with endless visual appeal.
“The photos I display in the hotel will be the result of a series of planned walks around Pigalle, starting with the work being done on the hotel. I want to take a fresh look at the streets where I grew up, using my local knowledge to give a very personal vision of the district, its people and architecture, and the quirky details that constitute its essence.”
