Robert Doisneau Paris: New Compact Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As a photographer, Robert Doisneau is known for his ability to infuse images of daily life with poetic nuance that imbued his photojournalism with an enduring popular appeal. The unprecedented scope of this collection provides the opportunity to study his more composed, aesthetically structured images alongside his snapshots, which offer a more anecdotal account of Doisneau's Paris. Organized thematically, the book leads us on an entrancing tour through the gardens of Paris, along the Seine, and through the crowds of Parisians who define their beloved city. More than 600 photographs-many rare, forgotten, and previously unpublished-are assembled in this beautiful volume to create a unique portrait of Paris. From toddlers scrambling to cross rue de Rivoli to fresh-faced accordionists, from elegant dog walkers to exuberant roller skaters, and from the indelible kiss in front of the Hetel de Ville to cyclists beneath the Eiffel Tower, the magic of Paris in black and white is a timeless treasure. The photographs, edited by Doisneau's daughter, are complemented by citations from the photographer himself, which reveal his profound fascination with the city where he lived and worked.

Synopsis:

Doisneau’s work immortalized the magic of Paris for posterity; this stunning compact edition, edited by the artist’s daughters, includes over six hundred photographs. Doisneau is celebrated for his ability to infuse images of daily life with poetic nuances that have brought enduring popular appeal to his photojournalism. This collection pairs aesthetically-composed photographs alongside snapshots that offer a more personal account of Doisneau’s Paris. Organized thematically, this book—unprecedented in scope—gives an entrancing tour through the gardens of Paris, along the Seine, and amid the crowds of Parisians who live in and define their bewitching city. "An enchanting cross-section of Parisian life by one of the photographers who best captured its many charms." —The New York Times, 2005

About the Author

Robert Doisneau (1912–1994) is one of the world’s most famous and popular photographers. His lyrical, touching, and at times nostalgic images have become iconic. He worked as a professional photographer in industry, journalism, and fashion, and later as a freelancer, but his real interest lay in capturing ordinary people in everyday situations on film.
