New York Times
His perfectly composed, richly printed views of Paris have sober, self-effacing clarity; but they are animated too, by subtly romantic or dreamy feelings.
Photo Review
an exquisite handling of lightŠvirtuoso use of the view cameraŠthe cumulative effect [is] one of harmony and light that is quintessentially French in its rationalityŠmaking large format photographs in Paris‹venturing into the belly of the beast, as it were‹requires a sure handŠnothing less than an exemplary essay on the nature of things French.
Library Journal
Trager, author of six previous photography books, including The Villas of Palladio and New York, is an internationally acclaimed architectural photographer whose work is displayed in numerous museum collections, including the Biblioth que Nationale, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Museum of Modern Art. In Changing Paris, Trager moves through the city following the Seine in an attempt to show the old, the new, and the particularly effective juxtaposition of varying architectural styles. This is especially evident in the Opera Bastille, I.M. Pei's Pyramid du Louvre, Residence Passy-Kennedy, Le Tripode, and the Eiffel Tower. The 64 attractive black-and-white plates of high quality reveal the unique beauty of Paris and enhance the book remarkably, as do the thorough architectural captions by Thomas Mellins and introductory texts by Pierre Borhan, Diane Johnson, as well as Trager himself. A site map and alphabetical index of sites complete an outstanding document of Paris that took Trager six years to produce, both behind the lens and in the darkroom. Recommended for large academic and public libraries, and schools of photography and architecture.--Thomas K. Fry, Univ. of Denver Lib. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
