Photos of the Grands Moulins de Paris as they stood before their renovation.
The Grands Moulins de Paris was an abandoned industrial mill in Paris, part of the ZAC Rive Gauche, near the Gare d'Austerlitz. It has been converted into student dorms for the University Paris VII.
I took those photos shortly before the construction work started. Everything you see on those photos does not exist anymore (except for the walls).
