Paris Mon Amour by Jean-Claude Gautrand
Book DescriptionAt 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.

Paris is a city built on two millennia of history. This title leads us through what Goethe described as 'universal city where every step upon a bridge or a square recalls a great past, where a fragment of history is unrolled at the corner of every street'. It recounts this history in photographs, from Daguerre's incunabula to the recent images.
