Love on the Left Bank

This is a facsimile edition of one of the ‘classic’ photography books of the century. Originally published in 1954, and long since out of print, it has been avidly sought by photographers and collectors alike. The book focuses on the Left Bank of Paris at the time when the area was recognized as a centre of creative ferment and the home of the artists, writers and aesthetes who would determine the cultural agenda of a generation. With its unconventional, gritty, snapshot-like technique the work was acclaimed as expanding the boundaries of documentary photography.
