About this title

Synopsis:

Nowhere are dogs more widely pampered by their owners than in the City of Light. Canines of varying breeds appear, well-fed and immaculately groomed, in all aspects of Parisian life, whether they are riding the Metro, sitting in the front seat of a taxi, or relaxing side by side with their maitre at a cafe table. Great photographers have long been fascinated by the city's obsession with dogs and, in Les Chiens de Paris, Barnaby Conrad III has amassed an irresistible collection of photographs of Parisian dogs taken over the last century. From Nadar's touching 1865 portrait of a boy and his dog to huge hounds, miniature pooches, and jounty mongrels captured by Lartigue in the Bois de Bologne, Erwitt in the Boulevard St. Germain, Doisneau at the Louvre, and Cartier-Bresson along the Seine, these timeless, duotone images resonate with comedy, poignancy, and joie de vivre.

Review:

Parisians love their dogs--200,000 pampered pooches lounge on the best sofas in the house, ride in chauffeur driven cars, and dine in the grandest restaurants. Well, even if all Parisian dogs aren't quite that spoiled, dogs are certainly held in high esteem. The fascination Paris has with its dogs is reflected in this lavish collection of black and white photographs selected by dog fanatic Barnaby Conrad III. This is a handsome gathering of hounds reveals Paris as a city where both rich and poor owners indulge their dogs. Well-groomed and large bellied dogs loll in public parks and guard the doors of sidewalk cafes, blending perfectly into the Paris street scene. This is a fabulous collection of photographs, which evokes the cosmopolitan feel of one of the world's most vibrant cities.
