About the Author
In 2000 Carla Coulson left her corporate job and glamorous Sydney life behind in pursuit of a dream to start a new life for herself in Europe as a photographer. In her first book, Italian Joy, she describes the joys and hardships of her first five years, spent living in Florence. In 2004, Carla moved to Paris with her partner, Francesco, and in 2008 she published Paris Tango, a tribute to her new home. Chasing a Dream, an inspiring collection of Carla's photography and stories, was published in 2011.
Carla has a popular blog, Carlalovesphotography, and her photography has been published in Marie Claire, Australian Gourmet Traveller, Collezione, Vogue Entertaining + Travel and Flair, among others.

Carla may be known to some of you Francophiles as the sidekick photographer to author Vicki Archer whose excellent recent book My French Life became a staple for collectors of books about the French lifestyle. Both women are ex-pat Australians, living in France.
It goes without saying that the tango in this book, is the dance Carla does with the city of Paris. The city holds her in the eternal embrace that is the tango - connected, profound, and sensual.
The frontispiece image is of dancer from the Moulin Rouge ascending the stairs, and the image on the end paper is photo of a pair of dance shoes that look as if the dancer's feet just kicked them off. Between these images are 292 delicious pages of masterful photography of glimpses of Paris life most of us will never have the pleasure to experience. Carla Coulson is the Brassai of her genertaion. (Brassai, Paris (Taschen 25th Anniversary Special Editins))
The great surprise in this book is the text that goes along with the masterful photography. Carla can write! And write she does, as she weaves one fabulous story after another along with the photos, words and images that intertwine like tango dancers legs.
For some odd reason the book has not been released in the USA, and it can be ordered on Amazon UK, and now on Amazon in the USA via some of the second hand booksellers you see here. Snap up this book from one of them.
Paris Tango is a lovely volume to own with a beautiful snap closure slip case, and red ribbon book mark, which are fitting elegant touches for the elegance the pages hold inside.
Paris Tango is a magnificent book to get for yourself, or to give as a spectacular gift.
Engage in your own visual tango as you savor its pages...
I just wish this book was in paperback...
