From high-society balls and fashion shoots to portraits of artists and scenes from urban life in France, this handsome volume--which features an open spine binding so that it lays flat to show off the photographs to their best advantage--showcases Doisneau's best photographs for Vogue Paris. Celebrated photographer Robert Doisneau worked for Vogue from 1949 until 1965, illustrating a postwar France filled with a renewed zest for life. His little-known images of haute couture featured models like Brigitte Bardot and Bettina, who he photographed in the studio and out on the streets. He chronicled the members of the caf� society in their stately homes and at glamorous costume galas, dancing the night away. Best known for his humanist approach, he masterfully captured scenes from everyday life--from the grace of a wedding procession over a footbridge to the petulance of a child impatient for cake. Doisneau's photographs captured the spirit of the era and featured celebrities like Karen Blixen, Picasso, Colette, and Jean Cocteau, as well as jazz musicians, movie stars, and humble craftsmen at work. Legendary Vogue editor in chief Edmonde Charles-Roux's personal homage to the photographer--who was her friend and colleague--offers intimate insight into the man behind the camera, as complex and beautiful as the people and places he immortalized.

With camera in hand, master photographer Robert Doisneau crisscrossed Paris to capture intimate moments with star musicians such as Eartha Kitt in a jazz club, Django Reinhardt at home, and Yehudi Menuhin backstage, or with locals at a neighborhood dance or jamming together in a brass band. He was commissioned for portraits of Georges Brassens, Juliette Gréco, Charles Aznavour, or Claude François, and he immortalized a new generation of musicians in the 1980s including Rita Mitsouko, Les Négresses Vertes, Pierre Schaeffer, and Pierre Boulez. Doisneau's lifelong friend Maurice Baquet with his cello formed a photogenic duo on impromptu outings that gave rise to iconic images. Doisneau's passion for the energy and joy inherent in the music world comes alive on the page in images that cover the musical spectrum, from classical and jazz to be-bop to the roots of modern rap and alternative rock. This book-curated by the photographer's granddaughter to accompany an exhibition at the Philharmonie de Paris that will include music by Moriarty and scenography by Stephan Zimmerli- features more than one hundred photographs, many previously unpublished, that showcase the artist's mastery in editing, special effects, photomontage, collage, photo distortions, and splits.

Gewinner des deutschen Krimi Preises 2016:›Die Unantastbaren‹. Der packende COP-ROMAN von Richard Price - Nachtschicht in Manhattan: Billy Graves ist ein ruheloser Cop. Energy-Drinks und Zigaretten halten ihn wach, während er in den frühen Morgenstunden die Blocks in New York City abfährt. Billy und vier seiner Freund bilden den harten Kern der Wildgänse - einer Gruppe vom Leben gezeichneter Cops und Ex-Cops in Manhattan, New York. Vergangene Untaten schweißen sie zusammen. Billy fristet, seit er bei einem Schusswechsel einen zwölfjährigen Jungen getötet hat, seine Zeit als Detective in der Nachtschicht. Wie seine vier Kollegen hat auch er einen Unantastbaren, einen skrupellosen Mörder, den er nie dingfest machen konnte. Als er einen der Unantastbaren in einer gigantischen Blutspur entlang einer Subway-Station findet, gerät die ungesühnte Vergangenheit wieder an die Oberfläche, und Billy beginnt, gegen seine engsten Vertrauten zu ermitteln. Ein fesselnder New York-Roman, knallhart, fesselnd und gnadenlos gut. »Unmöglich aus der Hand zu legen.« Stephen King
