Photographer's Note

Once primarily regarded as the city's Jewish heartland, Le Marais has emerged as many other things besides: its bohemian heart, and as one of its most fashionable areas with the most original shops situated in this area.

From swampy to swanky, the Marais has a fascinating history. Like an aging pop star, the quartier has remade itself many times, and today retains several identities. Its the city's epicenter of cool with hip boutiques, designer hotels, and art galleries galore; the hub of Paris's gay community; and, though fading, the nucleus of Jewish life.

Stroll up the Rue des Rosiers, which had once the largest Jewish community in Europe. Today the street is packed with delis, bakeries, old hammams, East European Jewish restaurants and shops with huge catchy and artsy signs like this.
