Stunning night photos immortalise the disappearing cafes in Paris

In his series ‘Red Lights’, artist Blaise Arnold wanders the streets of Paris at night, documenting the fading beauty of old cafes and bars.

Going out on weekends strictly at dusk or dawn, Arnold found vintage establishments scattered throughout the City of Light and captured them with a brooding, melancholic aesthetic.

Dark skies hovering above, streets devoid of people, a solitary light source emanating from the café’s neon sign. It’s eerie, yet captivating.

With neon signs slowly being phased out, and bigger businesses muscling out smaller shops, Arnold hopes his series will immortalise these classic bistros disappear.
