Introducing the new column, A Few Parisians, by cartoonist David Cessac. For the first installment, he captures a mother and child in front of the Musée du Quai Branly, the museum dedicated to the arts of Africa, Oceana, Asia and the Americas.
Tasked to capture a museum for a photography class through the Columbia University architecture program in Paris, I chose the Musée du quai Branly.

Feeling disoriented in the dim cavernous interior of the museum, I did not stay long but the architecture and the feeling of being in the space lingered with me for months.
