French photographer Nicolas Rivals‘ latest project entitled ‘Eloge de la Stabilité’ (In Praise of the Stability) is a stunning collection of light paintings in various urban locations throughout Paris. The famous city has always been one of the most romanticized places in the world, but with this series Rivals brings new sparks and warmth to its concrete corners after dark.
Shot in the late hours, these photos capture lights at their perfectly circular form. The illuminating lamps emit a contrast between light and dark, the industrial and the natural. The symmetry of architecture and cityscapes adds a surreal geometry to Rivals’ lit-up world.
