About - Eric A. Hamilton (Photographer & Writer)

Le Consulat Restaurant

Montmartre District

Paris, France

This amazing restaurant dates back to the late 1880’s.  It was commonly frequented by writers and artists such as Renoir, Monet, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Cezanne. It remains the same even after 120 years of being in business!

I designed, wrote, and edited the Annual Report.  For this report I included photos of various faculty members, graduate students, staff, visiting faculty members and researchers.  This had never been done before (it was all previously just text).  The Annual Report was well received, to the point that it was subsequently used as a major vehicle to promote the activities of IHPR and used for fund raising purposes.
