Film Friday: Paris ‘Les Halles’ in 1962′

By Dierk Topp

Hi Steve and Brandon,  in 1962 I made my first trip to Paris. At that time I used an Edixa Reflex with Kodak TRI X for my photographs.  I visited ‘Les Halles’, at that time an incredible market in the center of Paris. This market does not exist any more, Paris built a new one.

Here are four images from that visit. I never saw something like this before.

And just for fun the last image is the very first image, that I ever made. I made it with the Agfa Box of my mother during vacation with my school class in 1955 on Perutz film. To be honest, it is ma second photograph, the first one on this roll is just to bad

Digitized with Sony A6000 with enlarging lens on a bellows and Nissin Di700A TTL flash. Works perfect!

  1. Awesome pics! I can “smell” the market from them. Tri X still rules and it would be a waste not to use them until the time they stop making them.

  2. you should warn about the graphic images of yours…
    not everyone is up to seeing piles of animal heads…
