Île de la Cité
In the heart of Paris, this natural river island has been utilised for centuries and is steeped in history. While many of the historical buildings that previously existed on the island are gone, it is still home to three medieval buildings. This is a series of the day to day life on Île de la Cité and life along on the Seine River.
Bee's in the City
A noticeable decrease in pollinators has been observed around the world. In Paris, the oldest urban apiary in France, located in the Luxumbourg Garden, was built in 1856. Currently, more than 700 honeybee hives exist in parks, gardens, terraces and on rooftops providing habitat for honeybees, a connection to nature, education to the public and of course, honey! For one season, I shadowed a beekeeper who tends to the rooftop beehives in Paris.
