Paris, China

ISBN: 9781910566787 (PB - E)

An obscure town in China has built itself in the image of Paris. See if you can spot the difference. 'Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.' - Oscar Wilde ...and so the French captial ought to be flattered indeed. The small city of Tianducheng in China (built just 13 years ago) boasts an Eiffel Tower replica and 31km2 of convincing Parisien architecture, landscaping and fountains. Photographer François Prost became fascinated with the 'duplicature' movement in China and travelled there to capture the phenomenom. His resulting images, presented side by side with the French originals, are playful if a little unsettling. Is this flattery... or is it just weird? François Prost is a French photographer, art director and graphic designer based in Paris. His work has won numerous awards.
