ISBN: 9782080202178 Category:



Robert Doisneau’s playful approach to capturing Parisian street scenes on camera earned him recognition as one of the twentieth century’s most important photographers. Doisneau’s ability to infuse images of daily life with poetic nuance has given enduring popular appeal to his work. In this new volume, he leads us on an entrancing tour into Parisian gardens, along the Seine, and through crowds of Parisians. Workers, paupers, lovers, jugglers, children, dancers- Doisneau’s lens captures all, in myriad lights and moods. Sometimes humorous, often ironic, and unfailingly tender, his iconic oeuvre reflects the Paris of our dreams. This pocket edition features 175 photographs, including thirty previously unpublished images, that capture the essence of Paris. Composed, structured images appear alongside impromptu snapshots of Parisian life, demonstrating the range of Doisneau’s talent as both artist and photojournalist.
