Paris, Hemingway wrote, is a "moveable feast" that stays with you no matter where you go. Photographer Jack Dzamba latched onto the idea and came to think of Boston in the same way. Suddenly, everywhere he looked, he saw intimations of Paris: the Cabot Building is reminiscent of Place des Voges, Genzyme headquarters at night recalls Notre Dame, and myriad hotels, restaurants, and shops, like Rouvalis Flowers on Beacon Hill (at left), exude an unmistakeable French flair. This book, with its moody black-and-white photographs of buildings and scenes, makes Dzamba's case for the link between the two great cities.

Jack Dzamba, 75 pp., $34.95
