Meredith Mullins: Hangin' Out in the Streets of Paris

By Eyepreferparis88 @eyepreferparis

UnnamedStreet photographers are an adventurous concoction of hunter, flâneur, and life observer. We are always looking for the decisive moments, elements that make up more than the sum of their parts, or the tiny sliver of a story that makes a viewer want to know more.
We must be ready to pounce on those fleeting moments, or find a stage and wait patiently for the right characters to enter and the play to begin.
For me, when I return to Paris after a summer in the U.S., the best way to get back into the rhythm of this beautiful city is to step into the streets. Become an explorer. Open up and breathe it in.
And every rentrée, without fail, I am reminded how much there is yet to see . . . if you keep looking.

Meredith Mullins will be teaching a street photography workshop for the Mona Bismarck American Center (scroll to November on their programs page). Meredith is a fine art photographer, photography instructor, writer for OIC Moments, and Director of the International Fine Art Photography Competition. Her work can be seen at  or in her award-winning book, In A Paris Moment. She is also available for private photography instruction/exploration in Paris. Contact her at
