„'Paris,' originally published in 1974 is a classic of documentary photography representing post-war Paris in georgeous color rich in warmth“

“Paris is notable for two things. Firstly, it has a distinctive colour palette, composed of cool blues, greys, browns and purples. Secondly, there is Kimura’s view of the city itself, which teeters between conventional travel photography and something much more original…Kimura’s Paris, like Atget’s, is a nostalgic one, a city of crumbling textures and decaying structures, of courtyards and back alleys, of autumnal mists and winter gloom….At times Kimura certainly photographs Paris as if the city were in terminal decay rather than, as so many see it, an open-air museum with some artfully distressed surfaces.” (Parr/Badger, The Photobook: A History)
