In the wake of the brutal attacks in Paris last Friday, I have found myself reading and rereading the news looking for answers. It’s a horrible tragedy, and a terrifying idea that this kind of thing happens all too often in our fragile world. To distract myself from this senseless violence, I thought I’d share some of my favorite images of Paris from German fashion photographer Walde Huth. These photographs were taken by Huth in Paris for various fashion publications in the mid 1950s.

My heart goes out to those suffering as a result of last week’s attacks on Paris. May you all feel the warmth of our thoughts and well wishes.
