Rene Burri’s depiction of the Arc de Triomphe adds texture and narrative to the landmark building. Here, the Champs Elysées is shown in rush-hour chaos as visitors and commuters flood the famous street. Known as a glittering centre of high-end retail and restauranting, the Champs Elysées is depicted in a different way, with emphasis on the hard work and frenetic activity behind the storefronts.
