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 café 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.
Drawing not only upon Doisneau's previously unpublished archives but also on conversations with the photographer in his final years, this book examines every aspect of Doisneau's work, including the techniques he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.

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 Drawing not only upon Doisneau's previously unpublished archives but also on conversations with the photographer in his final years, this book examines every aspect of Doisneau's work, including the techniques he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.

The glory of classic Cartier jewelry is exhibited through fifty years worth of designs shown in this exhibition catalog. It shows how surprising the First Cartiers were, in two clear ways: first, art nouveau elements are almost totally absent. Instead there is a singular reinterpretation of the neoclassical vocabulary: floral motifs, acanthus scrolls, and garlands or drops. Care for detail in these architectural motifs–often in three dimensions–is paramount. At the same time, Cartier introduced the use of platinum for the mounts. This metal was more solid and more luminous but also harder to work. It required a revolution in setting techniques as well as new tools and underlying techniques. Layer by layer, these foundation designs raised Cartier to the position of visionary and pioneer.Specialists, collectors, fans of Cartier objects, and those who love decorative arts will discover a surprising new view of Cartier in this major catalog.

From the First World War to the Cold War, the sexual revolution to the Velvet Revolution, communism to capitalism, the 20th Century was marked by sweeping historical events and changes. In the Face of History brings together 22 of the greatest photographers of this period, whose works collectively map out a century of European experience. Published to accompany a major new exhibition at The Barbican, In the Face of History charts the history of European photography from 1900 to the present day, and features early masters such as Eugène Atget, André Kertész and Josef Sudek, alongside well-known figures such as Brassaï, Robert Doisneau and Wolfgang Tillmans. The book also includes less publicised photographers from the former Eastern bloc, with many works reproduced for the first time. All of the photographers are distinguished by a closeness to their subject matter, and some of them depict these subjects during times of great conflict. André Kertész carried his camera to the front as a conscript in the Austro Hungarian army, and documented the harsh realities of life as a soldier in the Great War. Henryk Ross was the official photographer of the Lodz ghetto in Poland in the Second World War, but also produced a series of clandestine and shocking images of life inside. In the Face of History also features photographers who have depicted the subtler currents of social and cultural change. Brassaï depicted the 'secret Paris' of the 1930s, with its brothels and drinking dens, while Christer Strömholm photographed a community of transsexuals in the same city two decades later. Similarly, contemporary photographers such as Jitka Hanzlová and Wolfgang Tillmans throw light on changes taking place in Europe in the era of globalisation. In the Face of History includes texts by the curators Kate Bush and Mark Sladen, an essay by the eminent photography historian and curator Martin Harrison, and texts on the individual photographers by a range of leading writers and commentators.
