We’ve had a great time with this Tumblr site for the last four years, and hope that you’ve enjoyed it as well. Now that Newsweek Magazine has changed hands, we are stepping back and will not be putting new posts on this site, although we’ll leave it live as an archive of images, impressions and news in this wonderful city.
For newer photos and to catch up at the kiosque, please feel free to visit ChristopherDickey.tumblr.com from now on.
The last nights of summer in Paris, France, this week.

The news business in transition … This newspaper kiosk in Paris has been taken over by a homeless person, who’s draped a makeshift tent over the entrance. CMSD took the photograph this morning on Avenue Friedland near the Arc de Triomphe. It occurs to me the SDF (sans domicile fixe) who took shelter here might actually be the person who was running it, but haven’t been able to check that out so far.

Paris during Nazi occupation in World War II.

This is so beautiful and frightening at the same time :/
I’ll be staying with The Beast team, reporting from Europe, the Middle East, and anywhere else I find compelling stories.

The new French law that may ban beauty pageants for girls under 16 may have its merits, but the choice of where to draw the line against hypersexualization is hypocritical.
It was a sports Sunday for Parisian women last weaken with the race called La Parisienne. It’s 6.7km around the Eiffel Tower for one good cause: the fight against breast cancer. The all-woman race was created, as it happens, by a man named Patrick Aknin who wanted to help break down the tendency toward male chauvinism in sport. It started with 1,500 runners in 1997 and on Sunday we were 35,000, a real record! The mix between festive atmosphere, healthy activity and a good cause are probably the reason of the success. Also - the weather. That seemed a real miracle. After 3 days of rainy gloom, the sun appeared, but just for the few hours of the event.
