Paris s'en va, Canal Saint Denis, Paris, 11 July 2013
`Cold stone is natural, almost living: it absorbs water, warms under the sun, and sloughs its skin in rain. Like us, stone is affected by time, its outer layer softened and its veins made more prominent. And viewed as a natural landscape, the city feels less permanent: even the strongest-looking behemoth of an apartment tower is gradually deteriorating under the persistent, patient forces of wind, water, and time'

(Alexandra Horowitz, On Looking: Eleven Walks with Expert Eyes, 2013)
