An affordable introduction to the great French modernist and chronicler of Paris Famous artists and humble laborers; nightlife and early-morning streets; the horrors of war and the joys of childhood: French photographer Robert Doisneau (1912–94) tirelessly captured the polarities and contradictions of Paris with his Leica. Robert Doisneau offers an overview of the beloved photographer’s masterful series in an affordable package. This hardcover volume features iconic works such as his Le Baiser de l’Hôtel de Ville, as well as lesser-known images such as Doisneau’s depictions of Jacob Riis–like squalor in a reemerging postwar Paris. A section is devoted to Doisneau’s portraits of some of the most famous 20th-century personalities who called Paris home or were just passing through. These include portraits of Albert Camus, André Malraux, Jacques Prévert, Jean Cocteau, Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Alberto Giacometti, Jean Dubuffet, Fernand Léger, Saul Steinberg, Jean Tinguely and others.
