Robert DoisneauRobert Doisneau: Paris As a photographer, Robert Doisneau is renowned for his ability to infuse images of daily life with poetic nuance that imbued his photojournalism with an enduring popular appeal. Organized thematically, the book leads us on an entrancing tour through the gardens of Paris, along the Seine, and through the crowds of Parisians who define their beloved city. More than 600 photographs, many of which have never before been published, are assembled in this beautiful volume to create a unique portrait of Paris. The unprecedented scope of this collection provides the opportunity to study his more composed, aesthetically structured images alongside his snapshots, which showcase Doisneau's personal anecdotes of Parisian life. From toddlers scrambling to cross rue Rivoli to fresh-faced accordionists, from elegant dog-walkers to exuberant roller skaters, and from the indelible kiss in front of the Hotel de Ville to call girls striking a pose, the magic of Paris in black and white is a timeless treasure. The photographs, edited by Doisneau's daughters, are complemented by archived citations from the photographer himself, which reveal his profound fascination with the city where he lived and worked.

On This EarthOn This Earth: Photographs from East Africa This is a vision of Africa quite unlike any that have come before: photographs of wildlife as Fine Art. Nick Brandt depicts the animals of East Africa with an intimacy and artistry unmatched by other photographers who choose wildlife as their subject. The pictures in On This Earth portray a world of drama and poignancy, where the very souls of the animals seem to be revealed to us. Brandt creates these majestic photos - whether of moments of quintessential stillness or bursts of dramatic action - by engaging with these animals on an exceptionally intimate level, without the customary use of a telephoto lens. Evocative of classical art, from dignified portraits to sweeping natural tableaux, Brandt artfully and simply captures animals in their natural state of being. With a foreword by acclaimed novelist Alice Sebold and an introduction by Jane Goodall, On This Earth is a gorgeous portrait of some of the last wild animals, and a heartfelt elegy to a vanishing world.

Marilyn MonroeMarilyn Monroe In 1952 went on assignment to photograph Marilyn Monroe for Esquire magazine. According to Arnold's recollections, the now-legendary film actress was captivating and the photographs were a success. Their relationship, which started as one of mutual advantage, developed into a friendship and, over the course of ten years, Arnold and Marilyn met for six other photography sessions. The shortest session was two hours long and the longest spanned over a period of two months, while Monroe was shooting The Misfits. This book chronicles those photography sessions and includes a text by Arnold, which gives insight to Monroe's career and personality. Photographers.
