In his photo series Tour Eiffel, photographer Jasper White has captured the fantastic elegance of the Eiffel Tower as it is viewed from different apartments all around Paris. White said that he embarked upon this project because of his love of Paris and how the distinctive landmark connects the city’s residents, all of whom are able to gaze upon it at the same time.
I wanted to see how it was viewed from the many different residents of Paris, who can see it from their apartment windows, all around the city. Each window frames the tower from a different distance and angle, allowing it to play a role alongside the objects within the room, almost like a fairy tale castle in a children’s book. Whilst viewing the tower from different apartments, the viewer has a sense of experiencing part of the residents’ lives, sharing a connection with others who can also see it.
