Paris Mon Amour, Paperback

Paris Mon Amour Paperback



At once cosmopolitan metropolis and venue for a pensive stroll, Moloch and emblem of the modern, Paris has been a source of inspiration for countless artists and writers down the ages.

But not least it is the home and constant muse of a relatively young art: photography.

Since the earliest days of the daguerreotype right up to our time, renowned photographers such as Joseph Nicephore Niepce, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Doisneau, and Jeanloup Sieff have lived and worked in the city of lights.

Over the years a love affair developed between Paris and photography, giving rise to a remarkable record of the metropolis and a telling history of a new art form.

This volume takes the reader on numerous walks, camera in hand, through the streets of Paris.

Atmospheric black-and-white photos, shot by great photographers over two centuries, reveal the dramatic and the tranquil, the historic and the everyday - in the capital's parks and gardens, boulevards and backstreets, passages and arcades, bistros and nightclubs.
