ROBERT Dois­neau is best known for his hu­man­is­tic ap­proach to street pho­tog­ra­phy and as be­ing a pi­o­neer of pho­to­jour­nal­ism. This book sheds light on the lesser im­ages taken through­out his time work­ing with Vogue be­tween 1949 and 1965. He was granted ac­cess to high-so­ci­ety balls, elite events and be­hind-the-scenes fash­ion shows, al­low­ing him to cap­ture re­mark­able im­ages of celebri­ties of the time such as Pi­casso and Jean Cocteau. The book also shows stun­ning im­ages of post-war French cities and suc­cess­fully por­trays the spirit of the era. Dois­neau’s black & white pho­to­graphs cap­ture mo­ments in time, so this book is a must for any­one who ap­pre­ci­ates ele­gance and re­fined style. Molly Yates ★★★★★
