Elisabeth, Paris

September 27, 2016

In this series, Joko portrays people from diverse creative and cultural backgrounds, giving us a peek inside the places where they find peace and joy.

Say hello to Elisabeth Leerssen, 28, who warm welcomed us into the place she feels most connected with: her cozy apartment on Rue de Menilmontant in France, Paris. After living in Amsterdam for 7 years, Elisabeth decided to move to Paris to work for creative collective Études Studio, only bringing along her plants and books. 

"Small is beautiful", with these words Elisabeth describes her apartment. Because of the limited space, she surrounds herself with objects that she believes are most essential: her racing bike, literature, plants and ceramics. 

On her day off, you can most likely find her reading one of the gems out of her book collection, or making une promenade through the city to discover new streets and parks.
