Paris Pictured
By Julian Stallabrass

Approximately 120 photographs in duotone, 160 pages, 9-5/8 x 11-7/8'

Published to complement the exhibition 'Paris: Capital of the Arts' at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, this superb collection of photographs, expertly reproduced in duotone plates, examines the side-by-side development of photography and the city of Paris from the turnof the last century through the tumultuous days of 1968. During these remarkable decades, Paris witnessed massive industrialization, two world wars, and social upheaval. The ever-advancing medium of photography captured every aspect of the changes.

Organized chronologically, and supported by Stallabrass's authoritative text, Paris Pictured includes some 120 photographs by luminaries such as Atget, Brassai, Kertesz, Cartier-Bresson, Doisneau, Ronis, Capa, Lartigue, Man Ray, and Moholy-Nagy, making it essential for all lovers of Paris and great photography.

Julian Stallabrass is Lecturer in Art History at the Courtauld Institute of Art, London, and the author of several books, including Gargantuo: Manufactured Mass Culture and High Art Lite: British Art in the 1990s.
