arbre serre paris


Caucasian elm, Japanese sophora, Oriental plane tree, bald cypress… 191 trees are classified as remarkable in Paris, both for their imposing size, their great age, their picturesque shape and the rarity of their species. In this series, Guillaume gives the leading role to this botanical heritage. “I did not dwell on the best known, nor favor the oldest. Rather, I sought to reveal their physical diversity. The vast majority have been planted and many are exotic species. Looking at them carefully, one sometimes has the impression that they impose themselves on passers-by. » The tree in Paris
