Because of black-and-white photos and grainy newsreels, we tend to remember World War I predominantly in monochrome — uniforms of dull khaki and field gray set against mud-filled trenches, churned earth and blasted craters.

As French photographer Baudouin set out to reveal the contemporary Parisian woman, he found instead a vastly diverse group of women - one that challenges the stereotype of what it means to be a female who lives and works in Paris. “The Parisian lady doesn’t exist. The Parisian ladies exist,” Baudouin said.
