Interview with Vahram Muratyan
When Vahram Muratyan began his online travel journal, Paris Versus New York, he had no idea how quickly it would become one of the most buzzed-about sites on the Internet. The blog garnered more than a million and a half page views within a few months, and the attention of savvy online critics.
Last year, Muratyan published a book of his unique observations from the two cities. Visually striking graphics paired with witty, thought-provoking tag lines offer a humorous and insightful look at the similarities and differences between Paris and New York. An English version of Paris versus New York, A Tally of Two Cities was published in January.
In a video interview, Muratyan describes his work as "A friendly visual match between two cities told by a lover of Paris wandering through NewYork"…
