Ed Sheeran Quotes (Author of Ed Sheeran)
Paris : Les Halles Market. Robert Doisneau , Vladimir Vasak. Doisneau's photographs of the now vanished Les Halles evoke nostalgia for the days when the vast market, which sprawled haphazardly over the center of the city, was known as "the belly of Paris. One such Parisian in particular was Robert Doisneau, one of the best loved French photographers of all time. Driven by his relentless curiosity and a sense of social conscience, Doisneau paced the Pavilions and their neighboring streets at length, and here he captured the heart of daily life at Les Halles. Many of Doisneau's romantic photographs have become iconic representations of twentieth-century Paris, but this volume exhibits some of his lesser-known but nonetheless extraordinary works. He had an uncanny capacity for capturing poetry in ordinary moments: a smiling fruit-seller bellows from behind a pyramid of oranges, while a fish-vendor hauls a cart of gigantic fish past a mountain of flower bouquets ready to grace Parisian dinner tables, which you can virtually smell.
Robert Doisneau is one of the world's most famous and celebrated photographers. Convert currency. Add to Basket. Book Description Condition: New. Bookseller Inventory ST

A photographer in love with his city, he took over , images of Paris, photographing up to his death in Driven by a thirst for images, Doisneau roamed the streets of Paris with his twin-lens Rolleiflex, often shooting under the worst conditions in dim cafes and on dark rainy streets.
