American Street Photography
by Marie Laigneau
About the Book
American cities are made of dreams, of whispers and old memories. As I walked across the streets of Chicago, San Francisco and New York, I wanted to portray the invisible relationship connecting people to the city they belong to, either consciously or unconsciously. My vision of these cities is thus tinted with dreams, the only way I found to express the fleeting essence of our urban lives.
