Robert Doisneau infused images of daily life with poetic nuance. This unique portrait of Paris in more than 600 photographs is reissued in hardcover with red-tipped pages. This entrancing tour through the gardens of Paris, along the Seine, and among crowds of Parisians includes children scrambling to cross rue de Rivoli, fresh-faced accordionists, elegant dog walkers, exuberant roller skaters, the indelible kiss in front of the Hôtel de Ville, and cyclists beneath the Eiffel Tower. The magic of Paris in black and white is timeless.
Photographs curated by Doisneau’s daughters and complemented by Doisneau’s own commentary reveal his profound fascination with the city where he lived and worked.
