The first authorized biography available, Robert Doisneau provides an intimate rich account of the life of the French photographer who captured the streets and elusive spaces of Paris as the city entered the modern era. Drawing not only upon Doisneau's previously unpublished archives but also on conversations with the photographer in his final years, this book examines every aspect of Doisneau's work, including the techniques he used. Emphasized are his periods of engagement with the birth of photojournalism in the 1930s; with humanist social realism in the 1940s and 1950s; and with montage and art brut in the 1960s. The photographs, made by Doisneau on his own and while working for Vogue, Life, and other well-known magazines, reveal how the familiar is swept away, a theme germane to city-dwellers everywhere.

Between 1888 and 1927 Eugne Atget meticulously photographed Paris and its environs, capturing in thousands of photographs the city's parks, streets, and buildings as well as its diverse inhabitants. His images preserved the vanishing architecture of the ancien rgime as Paris grew into a modern capital and established Atget as one of the twentieth century's greatest and most revered photographers. Christopher Rauschenberg spent a year in the late '90s revisiting and rephotographing many of Atget's same locations. Paris Changing features seventy-four pairs of images beautifully reproduced in duotone. By meticulously replicating the emotional as well as aesthetic qualities of Atget's images, Rauschenberg vividly captures both the changes the city has undergone and its enduring beauty. His work is both an homage to his predecessor and an artistic study of Paris in its own right. Each site is indicated on a map of the city, inviting readers to follow in the steps of Atget and Rauschenberg themselves. Essays by Clark Worswick and Alison Nordstrom give insight into Atget's life and situate Rauschenberg's work in the context of other rephotography projects. The book concludes with an epilogue by Rosamond Bernier as well as a portfolioof other images of contemporary Paris by Rauschenberg. If a trip to the city of lights is not in your immediate future, this luscious portrait of Paris then and now is definitely the next best thing.

"The Work of Atget: The Art of Old Paris will be published in conjunction with the exhibition of the same title, on view in the West Wing Galleries of The Museum of Modern Art from October 14, 1982 through January 4, 1983. The book is the second of four exploring the art of the French photographer Eugene Atget. Support for The Work of Atget volumes has been generously provided by Springs Industries, Inc. During his lifetime, Atget was best known as a photographer of Old Paris, the subject of this volume. To create his portrait of Paris as it had appeared prior to the French Revolution, he photographed not only the famous sites and monuments--Notre Dame, the Pantheon, and the Luxembourg Palace--but also the little-noticed corners and artifacts that had escaped the urban renewal projects of the 19th century--the quiet courtyards, private town houses, and unexpected passageways. Perhaps no more intimate portrait of Old Paris exists than the one Atget painstakingly fashioned." "A biography of Atget by Mrs. Hambourg forms the text of the 192-page The Art of Old Paris. Drawing on new research, Mrs. Hambourg reveals more fully the life of this hitherto elusive and shadowy artist and offers new insights into his intellectual pursuits and his political and artistic associations. The 117 photographs in the exhibition are reproduced as full-page plates, printed in three color offset to insure the utmost fidelity to the original prints. The plates are fully annotated and accompanied by 95 reference illustrations."--Excerpt from the MoMA press release No. 31 (see link to PDF).

In 1860, combined Western European armies brought ruin to the treasured Summer Palace of the Qing emperors near Beijing. However, other Westerners contributed to the garden's remembrance through their photographs of the only architecture left standing after the fire: the European Palaces built by Jesuits in the 1750s for the great Qianlong emperor. The handful of photographers who documented these ruins between 1860 and 1925 came from many different countries. Some were professionals, the majority were not, yet all contributed to the memories of a world that has come to symbolize the losses China suffered through foreign ambition. Regine Thiriez studies those photographers who provided such rare views of the European Palaces, revealing how the lives of these men in China, the interaction that took place among them, and the context of foreign presence and photography in Beijing further illuminated their work.

This volume presents the essence of the work of the great French photographer Eugène Atget through one hundred carefully selected photographs. Atget devoted more than thirty years of his life to the task of documenting the city of Paris and the surrounding countryside, and in the process created an oeuvre that brilliantly explains the great richness, complexity, and authentic character of his native culture. John Szarkowski, an acknowledged master of the art of looking at photographs, explores the unique sensibilities that made Atget one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century and a vital influence on the development of modern and contemporary photography. The eloquent introductory text and commentaries on Atget’s photographs form an extended essay on the remarkable visual intelligence displayed in these subtle, sometimes enigmatic pictures.

It is part of Taschen's policy to celebrate the infamous and the notorious -- rebel artists who have had to constantly struggle against the rigid morality of the censors and the law. French photographer Serges Jacques is a case in point. His groundbreaking nudes in the 50's were deemed obscene because he revealed his models' pubic hair. He Faced countless arrests, blacklists, and regular raids on his studio and darkroom. Like other mavericks of the time, he continued his mission in the Face of adversity, and continued to photograph and publish the legendary French pin-up magazine ""Paris -- Hollywood"". For Jacques, ""Hollywood"" was a state of mind, an imaginary landscape of the erotic imagination, where everybody's sexual preferences were given Free rein. Painstakingly, Jacques recreated the details of these Fantasies within the privacy of his studio -- building papier-mache sets, posing the girls on beds of pretend snow, and dressing them up (and undressing them) in decorative lingerie. Kitsch, amusing, and still provocative, this is an excellent compilation of Serges Jacques' finest and, under the circumstances, bravest work.
