How Dagmara Chwalowska Captured The Soul Of Paris

Laetitia Collier

Dagmara moved to Paris from the UK, quite reluctantly, over a year ago. Macarons and the Eiffel Tower are precisely the clichés she’s religiously trying to avoid – however, after a few days here, she fell for the city, truly, madly and in a very real way. She fell for the people, the places and the ambiance which are so different and more thrilling than the sugar-coated Paris which is usually represented on (social) media. The best thing about Instagram she says, is that it allows her to share the city she sees with people who inspire her daily. Along with her, we’d like to welcome you to her gallery and hope you enjoy every bit of it.
