Portrait of a City: Paris

Jean Claude  (Author)
A lens on the city of lights: A photographic tribute to a capital of romance Described by Goethe as "universal city where every step upon a bridge or a square recalls a great past, where a fragment of history is unrolled at the corner of every street", Paris is as rich in its two millennia of history as it is in its beauty, its romance, and its art.

It was on the banks of the Seine that Niepce and Daguerre officially gave birth to the new art of photography, and in this evocative tapestry of images, Paris: Portrait of a City leads us through the city´s photographic, as well as its cultural, architectural and civic history. Now in a popular Reader´s Edition, the book features some 500 pictures, bringing together past and present, the monumental and the everyday, faces and vistas. Images captured by the most illustrious photographers-Daguerre, Marville, Atget, Lartigue, Brassaï, Kertesz, Ronis, Doisneau, Cartier-Bresson, sit alongside unknown photographers whose work somehow bottles a little of that "Parisian air," in all its sensuality, its poetry and its light.
