“Artiste touche à tout”, drawer, painter, musician, singer in the french vocal group Pow Wow Alain Chenneviere is a real Paris passionate. A while ago he started to take pictures of the old Paris, the one that is slowly disappearing. Old shops soon to be replaced by trendy restaurant, small streets and buildings falling apart. Pictures that he shares on his Instagram account. He tells us more about his own Paris.
Living in Paris for…. I’ve been living in Paris for 36 years now, and I wouldn’t live anywhere else!
Loving Paris for …. I love Paris for it’s History, that is so plainly visible everywhere, for its Spirit of freedom and culture that is so tangible even in the air you breathe, and for all the secret places and stories I still discover after more than 30 years. But maybe, most of all, I love its Cafés where I wrote so many songs, and sketched so many passing girls.
You can always be found at… I can be found every morning at the Marché d’Aligre, where you can find fruits, vegetabales and all kinds of food, but also a small flea market which dates back centuries ago.
One secret place in Paris…. One secret place that I love is the small Charonne graveyard, behind the old church that stands along Charonne street. It’s the only church graveyard remaining in Paris, and the atmosphere there is quiet and out of this time.
Wishing to go….Places I’d love to go: Louisiana, Peru and Scandinavia
