Nice, France (CNN)On Friday, the photographer Alessandra Sanguinetti went to Nice, France. Her first impression, she said, was that it was "absolutely beautiful."

And that's true. Anyone, myself included, who has ever been to the southern French city will tell you: It's a place where the sunshine is surreal, the blue hue of the Mediterranean is majestic.
But Sanguinetti also experienced a Nice unlike the one most of us are familiar with.
"At first I didn't notice it since I was too baffled by the city -- I have never been to Nice before," she said. "It looked like everybody was going about their normal lives."
