The legendary French photographer Robert Doisneau’s black and white photographs immortalise the magic of Paris with their combination of nostalgia and modernity. Fascinated by his city, Doisneau had an uncanny ability to capture poetry in ordinary moments and his eye for humour and poignancy infused his work with enduring appeal. From the jubilation of the ‘Liberation’ in 1944 to a gaggle of schoolchildren crossing the street to the famous kiss in front of the Hotel de Ville, the 560 photographs in this definitive volume are enhanced by witty and revealing quotations from the photographer’s personal notebooks.
