CATACOMBS OF PARIS

 


Photograph by STEPHEN ALVAREZ

 

Photographer’s Description:In a sandy chamber known as the “beach,” a wave rolls across a wall painted (and repainted) by cataphiles in the style of Japanese printmaker Hokusai. Such works can take hundreds of hours—the painting but also the carrying in of supplies.
