Perhaps best-known for his documentation of working-class Paris (La Banlieue de Paris) and his high-society and fashion photography for Paris Vogue, Robert Doisneau was “one of France’s most popular and prolific reportage photographers, known for his modest, playful, and ironic images in amusing juxtapositions, mingling social classes, and eccentrics in contemporary Paris streets and cafes” (Encyclopedia of Photography). This gallery catalogue reproduces 33 of the 96 images in the 2000 Bernard Gallery showing. Text in French. See Icons of Photography, 106; Roth, 132; Parr & Badger, 201. From the collection of Peter Turnley, acclaimed photojournalist for Newsweek, Life and Harper’s Magazine, who has covered “almost every important international news event of the last 15 years” (New York Times). Owner signature of Peter Turnley.
