Robert Doisneau (1912-1994) is best known for his magical, timeless 35mm street portraits taken in Paris and its suburbs. Fresh, unstaged, and full of poetry and humor, his photographs portray everyday people (in everyday places, doing everyday things) frozen in time, unwittingly revealing fleeting personal emotions in a public context. Doisneau`s gift was the ability to seek out and capture, with humanity and grace, those little epiphanies of everyday Parisian life. This book traces Doisneau`s life and career, providing a wonderful introduction to the work of this seminal photographer. Издание на английском, французском и немецком языках.
As sensitive to human suffering as to the simple pleasures of life, Robert Doisneau is one of the most celebrated exponents of the Photographie humaniste that swept through the 1950s. Cherished in particular for his soulful portraits of Paris, Doisneau demonstrated a unique ability to find - and perfectly frame - charismatic characters, entertaining episodes and fleeting moments of humorand affection. A summation of a spectacular career, this is the most extensive Doisneau collection ever published, including all his best loved images alongside many lesser-known compositions which equally rejoice in "the ordinary gestures of ordinary people in ordinary situations." The many quotations from the photographer throughout the volume immerse the reader in Doisneau's thoughts and give verbal expression to the sensitivity, warmth, and wit which characterize his pictures. Through more than 400 images, we are transported to the grim suburbs of Doisneau's youth; through the world of manual labor whose nobility he so admired; and to the studios of the many groundbreaking artists that Doisneau captured in moments of reflection and creativity. A number of color shots of Palm Springs and the transformed suburbs of Doisneau's childhood reveal a different, more critical, eye to the master photographer. For this new monograph on all aspects of the life and oeuvre of Robert Doisneau, his long-time friend and TASCHEN author Jean Claude Gautrand had unlimited access to the extensive photo archive...

For over six decades, Robert Doisneau cast his net in still waters, light years away from the predatory news photographers of today, "feeling his way", in his own words, 'prompted by feelings of attraction and repulsion, tossed hither and thither by events, and allowing intu-ition its head - even when it kicked over the traces… Doisneau delighted in gleaning the instant. Clear of gaze, a man with a winning smile, he liked to say 'I never noticed time passing, I was too taken up with the spectacle afforded by my contemporaries, that gratuitous, never-ending show for which no ticket is needed, and when the occasion arose, I offered them, in passing, the ephemeral solace of an image'. Throughout the years Doisneau captured, day after day, 'the ordinary gestures of ordinary people in ordinary situations'. Joys he felt and discoveries he made as he walked the city make up the subject-matter of his photographs: 'There are days when simply seeing feels like happiness itself... You feel so rich, the elation seems almost excessive and you want to share it'.
