"There are days when the mere act of seeing feels like pure joy. You're buoyant, so buoyant-cops halt the traffic to let you cross. You feel so rich that you want to share your overflowing joy with others. 'It's Sunday every day!' as the song by Frevert goes.
The memory of such moments is the most precious thing I own. Maybe because they're so rare.
One-hundredth of a second here, one-hundredth of a second there: added all together that still makes only one, two, maybe three seconds snatched from eternity."

The legendary photographer’s quintessential portraits of Paris—including several previously unpublished works—in an affordable new paperback. Robert Doisneau’s ability to infuse images of daily life with poetic nuance has given enduring popular appeal to his work. In this new volume, he leads us on an entrancing tour into Parisian gardens, along the Seine, and through crowds of Parisians. Workers, beggars, lovers, jugglers, children, dancers—Doisneau’s lens captures all, in myriad lights and moods. Sometimes humorous, often ironic, and unfailingly tender, his oeuvre is iconic and reflects the Paris of our dreams. Composed, structured images are featured alongside impromptu snapshots of Parisian life, demonstrating the range of Doisneau’s talent as both artist and photojournalist.
