Robert Doisneau: Paris

From Publishers Weekly
Photographer Doisneau (1912–1994) had a tremendous gift not only for portraying the beauty of Paris but for capturing the charm of its citizens; some of his images have come to define Paris, even for those who've never visited. Most of the 600 photos in this classic collection feature at least one person, and the expressions on their faces are so real they feel staged. One, of a young woman finishing a roller-coaster ride, catches her with a look of "mon dieu, I thought I'd die!" The way Doisneau composes his images, focusing on a subject's "aura" ("that kind of neon light," he says, glowing around certain people) is striking. He possesses a satirical eye for humor (e.g., the shots of various sculptures doused in pigeon droppings) and the bizarre (a Monsieur Beauvoir sitting at a bar with a large bird...

Book Review
Robert Doisneau: A Photographer's Life covers the renowned work of the French photographer famous for the 1950 picture Le Baiser de le Hotel de Ville ("Kiss at the Hotel"). This frequently reproduced portrait of an attractive couple frozen in an embrace while Parisian city life whirls around them is an archetypal emblem of romance. It's pretty surprising to learn that Doisneau hired young actors for his entire kissing series; nevertheless, the moment rings undeniably true. Maybe it's his beginnings in advertising or his fashion work for Vogue that lend his images equal parts of real life and theater.

Doisneau (1912-1994) spent his lifetime recording life in France. With his combination of photojournalism and art, he captured nightclubs, the Parisian working-class suburbs, national monuments, weddings, and famous folk...



Versailles

Book Description
The sumptuous palace and gardens of Versailles represented both Louis XIV’s celebration of himself and a perfectly balanced integration of art and nature. Millions of tourists have long admired the gardens for their inexhaustible source of new life and enduring mystery. The allées and parterres resonate with memories of pomps and promenades, feasts and follies. As a monument to the Sun King, the solar symbolism of Apollo reigns over both architecture and ornament at Versailles, yet French classicism dominates the gardens, imposing a strict geometrical order on the forest, shaping the flowerbeds and boxwood, and brightening the bosky depths with fountains and statuary. Photographer Jacques Dubois presents Versailles through the cycle of the seasons and the shifting intensities of their light. His evocative...

From Publishers Weekly
A little over three years ago, Gingko Press published Atget Paris, a beautiful collection of 840 b&w photos taken by Eugene Atget in the years before his death in 1927. Now Doisneau Paris, by Brigitte Ollier, takes up where that volume left off. Robert Doisneau, who died in 1994, began taking photos of the city in the 1930s, but the bulk of the 650 b&w photographs in this collection are from the 1940s, '50s and '60s. From the deprivations of war (a girl's first communion in a basement shelter) to the demolition of progress (Doisneau's lyrical portraits of Les Halles over the decades ends with its demolition and the opening of the egregious Forum des Halles). This is a truly marvelous collection, portraying people going about their daily business in a city that is never mundane.Copyright 1996 Reed Business...


Robert Doisneau: Three Seconds of Eternity

Paperback

Book Description
"My photographs are completely subjective. They show the world as I would like it to be at all times. And, for me, this world exists ... because I create photographic proof of it." Robert Doisneau became France’s most popular photographer. Most people are familiar with his most famous pictures: the lovers kissing in the town square, or Picasso with croissants for fingers, or the couple looking at an antique dealer’s shopwindow. In his shots of everyday scenes Doisneau pays affectionate homage to life in the small towns and suburbs of France. Three Seconds of Eternity, first published in 1979, remains the classic Doisneau book, now available again. The photographer himself not only selected the pictures, but also wrote a celebrated essay that is a vivid, amusing account of his career as a photographer, his...

Maverick Eye: The Street Photography of John Deakin

Hardcover

From Library Journal
British photographer Deakin (1916-72) has most often been noted for photographing artists who worked in London's Soho area during the 1950s, some of whom included Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, and Frank Auerbach. In addition to his Soho photographs and his employment as a Vogue photographer, this book addresses Deakin's lesser-known photographs of everyday scenes in Paris, London, and Rome. High-quality, full-page reproductions illustrate Deakin's effectiveness in using the shapes and textures found in city streets. By using material from the photographer's correspondence with journalist Dan Farson, Muir also succeeds in penetrating the personal side of Deakin, including his reliance on friends for financial support, his heavy drinking, and his failed efforts at painting and sculpture. A former picture editor of...
