À propos

Robert Doisneau's enchanting black-and-white photographs immortalize the magic of Paris, with its combination of dreamy nostalgia and teeming modernity. Profoundly fascinated by his city, the photographer possessed an uncanny ability to capture poetry in ordinary moments-from the jubilation of the Liberation in 1944, to a gaggle of schoolchildren crossing the street, or the famous kiss in front of the Hôtel de Ville-and it was this eye for humor and poignancy that infused his work with enduring popular appeal. The 560 photographs in this definitive volume-curated by his daughters Annette Doisneau and Francine Deroudille-are enhanced by witty and revealing quotations from the photographer's personal notebooks.

Robert Doisneau

Robert Doisneau (1912-1994) is one of the world's most famous and popular photographers. His poetic, touching, and at times nostalgic images of France have become iconic. He did a stint at Vogue, but his real interest lay in capturing on film ordinary people in everyday situations. He received many prizes during his life; since his death in 1994 there have been major retrospectives of his work in Paris, Chicago (The Art Institute), and New York (the Witkin Gallery).
