24 Hours in Paris
24 Hours is a challenge to photographers to document life in a city or community with 24 hours and an opportunity for everyone else to glimpse into a day in the life of cultures all around the world.
“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”
The stories we publish aim to highlight the differences and similarities between global cultures, social justice and injustice, economic change and the evolving world
I love Paris. I feel at home there. People fantasise about the romanticism that comes with walking Parisian streets but for me, it’s not just a fantasy. The adoration I have doesn’t come from the beautiful monuments or the indulgent fashion and gastronomy, it’s from the vibe on the street, the satisfaction in being part of its culture.

After taking the overnight train from Hanoi to Sapa in North Vietnam, I had only the information of friends who had told me of its beauty. Sun soaked rice fields, rich green forests and sparkling rivers dominating the landscape. My experience was nothing like this. Heavy cloud, rain and thick mud made hiking near impossible, views near obsolete and foreigners scarce, but I couldn’t have been happier.
I was travelling in McLeod Ganj when I met a 17 year old boy called Tashi at a bus station. As he began to tell his story, I became more and more interested in the challenges of Tibetan migrant children and followed this story to ‘The Tibetan Children’s Village’, a school for Tibetan refugees.
