Robert Doisneau

Overview

This Taschen Portfolio features 14 stunning prints by one of the world’s foremost photographers, Robert Doisneau. Doisneau continues to tell stories full of feeling, poetry and humor, and to enchant us with his capacity to communicate that implicit but fleeting relationship - a tender complicity - that made him one with what he photographed.

Born in Gentilly on April 14, 1912 between ‘Bièvres’ and the now vanished fortifications, just outside Paris, Doisneau remained a denizen ...

Overview

This Taschen Portfolio features 14 stunning prints by one of the world’s foremost photographers, Robert Doisneau. Doisneau continues to tell stories full of feeling, poetry and humor, and to enchant us with his capacity to communicate that implicit but fleeting relationship - a tender complicity - that made him one with what he photographed.

Born in Gentilly on April 14, 1912 between ‘Bièvres’ and the now vanished fortifications, just outside Paris, Doisneau remained a denizen of the suburbs till his death: the Montrouge apartment that he took in 1937 remained his home for the rest of his life. The particular interest he took in working-class milieux and environments led to images rich in poetic social realism, images that profoundly influenced the film and literature of his time. In 1950, the magazine Life commissioned a set of images of the lovers of Paris from the agency Rapho. The result was the famous series of ‘Kisses’, including the ‘Baiser de l’Hôtel de Ville’, which has become Doisneau’s signature image. The ‘Kisses’ were for the most part staged, but display a wonderful complicity with the participants in this typically Parisian theatre. Always the loner, Doisneau has continued the rounds of his own chosen area between Paris, Montrouge and Gentilly and there are now more than 400.000 pictures to testify to his perambulations and discoveries. He is the true piéton de Paris.

    Doisneau l'immortelle

    Robert Doisneau's photos are now part of the photographic heritage of the 20th century--even though he wasn't a war correspondent, or a fashion photoprapher, or a celebrity paparazzo. His photos are of people, scenes, and daily life. The focus is Paris, but the scope is worldwide. Some photos are classic, such as the lover's kiss outside the Hotel de Ville, in Paris. Others are unique in their own way, quiet, thoughtful, happy. They are in a way like the films of Jacques Tati, warm and human. This book of photos mixes both familiar and strange photos from his oeuvre, and in a large size. Perfect for framing. My favorite is of the poet Jacques Prevert sitting alone at a table on a Paris street, pondering--who knows what? Perhaps . . . the death of a poet.
