TOUR EIFFEL is a fun and intriguing photography project by Jasper White looking at intimate and unique views of the Eiffel Tower from the homes of Parisian residents.
Each room is like one of the cast in a play, playing its part in the story, with the fairytale tower always in view, as if from a children's book.
The images have been curated and will be published in a high-quality photo book in collaboration with the renowned publisher Kehrer Verlag.
Tour Eiffel is one of the most worldwide recognised icons in the 20th century, captivating the imagination of millions of people.
The book Tour Eiffel, contains 40 images of views from the homes of residents of Paris from all walks of life, a diverse microcosm of Parisian society.
Jasper White came up with the idea while visiting Paris on assignment, looking at the tower from the hills of Montmartre, his curiosity made him wonder about the people who shared its view all over the city, and this planted the seed of the project.
The book captures the innermost insights, taking the ordinary and making it extraordinary, focusing on these environments to narrate a story of each individual and their relationship with the Eiffel Tower, creating this incredible, interesting and engaging document of these residents, its a book which can be revisited and new stories, details and characters in the images can be discovered each time.

In order to produce a high-quality photo book, I need to raise funds, publishing has become very expensive and it has become common practice that the artist funds a share of the costs, that's why I'm reaching out to you with this Kickstarter, In order to help make the book becomes reality, I need to raise £10,000 for the production and printing.
I really hope that you like the project and want to support me by buying one of the pledges.
The book was designed by the creative team at Foundation London, an awarding winning design agency.
