Prepare for a nostalgic journey. This volume explores the rise and development of photography in Paris and the relationship between the art form and the city that gave it birth. The 100 richly atmospheric duotone photos carefully selected by photographer Deedes-Vincke to convey a sense of historical development present numerous images of a Paris that has long since vanished. The earliest photographs, dating from the 1830s, depict parts of the city that were later completely eradicated by the "modernizing" influence of Baron Haussman. Divided into four historic periods covering the years from 1839 to 1968, the selections range from the early 19th-century works of Daguerre through Atget, Kertesz, and Cartier-Bresson, the Magnum style of Capa and photojournalism, and the arrival of commercial photography. Recommended for both public and academic libraries with strong photography, history, or travel collections.
