Robert Doisneau (Last Copies)
During the nineteenth century France, and especially Paris, produced a number of renowned photographers who recorded life in that great city.
Brassai and Cartier-Bresson are perhaps the most famous, but Robert Doisneau (1912-1994), was slightly later, and his work spans a considerable period.
Doisneau specialised in people, especially workers, as much as specific places, and this very large book showcases over 400 examples of his work, very largely in B&W, from the 1920s to the 1990s. His photographs taken during both during the Occupation of Paris, and its Liberation are especially memorable, but there are a huge number of visual delights to enjoy here.
