In a career that spanned more than fifty years, photographer Edouard Boubat (1923-1999) captured the magic of fleeting moments with tenderness and warmth. A contemporary of Brassai and Robert Doisneau, and one of the most influential French photographers of the twentieth century, Boubat made elegant, poetic images - beginning with intimate views of everyday life in his native city of Paris and moving on to striking pictures taken during his travels in Africa, India, Spain, Portugal, Mexico, and Japan, when he was working as a staff photojournalist for the well-known French magazine Realites. Boubat's photographs were the subject of a major exhibition at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, in 1976, the same year he published the first major book on his oeuvre.
Now, five years after the photographer's death, this luxurious volume presents the entire range of Boubat's work in more than three hundred tritone photographs. All his most famous images are here - including those of his muse, Lella - along with texts by writers Marguerite Duras, Michel Tournier, and Jacques Prevert, as well as Boubat's own writings and notebook excerpts. Developed in close collaboration with Boubat's son, Bernard, and photographer/filmmaker Genevieve Anhoury, this authoritative volume is the only existing monograph on the enduringly popular photographer.
