A lovely anthology of images of Paris in the 50's. 200+ duotone photo illus. plates. Dutch photographer Ed Van der Elsken, at the time impoverished and himself living in Paris, captured the grit and beauty of Paris in the 1950's - his images reveal the bustling, seamy side of 1950's Saint-Germain as well as erotic and all-too-human glimpses of sexy, beautiful women. Captured here are a very young Brigitte Bardot, Ethel Portnoy, Fernandel, Orson Welles, Edith Piaf, Christian Dior, Elsa Schiaparelli, the cafes and clubs of Montmartre and Montparnasse, plus a large selection of images from the Dutch photographer's renowned book, Love on the Left Bank. One of the most iconic bodies of work in any medium on Parisian life in the early 50s. Includes a section on Australian "femme fatale" Vali Myers, who was featured Love on the Left Bank. "Throughout these years, Van der Elsken and William Klein often seemed to be shadowing one another always emphacizing the expressive over the reportorial and always gravitating to society's margins-to the rebels, the gangsters, the bohemians, the artists"--from Roth, et. al., The Book of 101 Books.
