Avenue du Bois de Boulogne, Paris by Jacques-Henri Lartigue (1911)

The photograph titled “Avenue du Bois de Boulogne, Paris” was taken by Jacques-Henri Lartigue in 1911. This black-and-white image captures a scene on an avenue in Paris, reflecting the elegance and fashion of the early 20th century.

In the foreground, there is a person wearing a luxurious fur coat and a wide-brimmed hat that shades their face, giving the figure a somewhat mysterious appearance. They are walking a small, alert white dog with dark markings, which is on a leash. The background features hazy silhouettes of vintage cars driving along the avenue and leafless trees lining the street, suggesting it might be late autumn or winter. The perspective and motion blur convey a sense of dynamism, as if capturing a fleeting moment during a stroll through an aristocratic part of Paris.
