Art historian Joanna Lemanska has created a beautiful reflective photography series highlighting the city of Paris in a fresh new way. Using puddles or a shiny objects like mirrors, glass and metal she focuses on repetitive elements and symmetry found in architecture or nature to capture reflections of the city with her iPhone 4s, a Fujifilm x10 or a Nikon Coolpix.

“I enjoy all kind of reflections and I don’t have any particular preference for Paris. It could be London, Berlin or New York. It’s just that I live in Paris, so naturally the majority of my photos are taken there. What I’m looking for in reflections are perfect composition and aesthetic pleasure. Sometimes reflections give a unique, aquarelle-like look to the picture. Sometimes they make the image look futuristic and incredible. Shooting reflections is like a playground for me as I really enjoy looking for puddles and slippy surfaces, just to see what kind of different effects they have to offer.” – Joanna Lemanska  

Her work is on display April 2-7 at Gallery Yamashita in Kyoto, Japan in an exhibition titled Cool Pics from Paris.

More of her gooooorgeous photography after the jump.
