In a career that spanned more than fifty years, Édouard Boubat (1923–99) captured the magic of fleeting moments with tenderness and warmth. A contemporary of Robert Doisneau and one of the most influential French photographers of the twentieth century, Boubat made elegant, poetic images, beginning with pictures of everyday life in his native Paris and moving on to striking photographs taken on his travels to Africa, India, Spain, Portugal, Brazil and China.

This luxurious volume presents the entire range of Boubat’s work in more than 300 beautiful tritone reproductions. All of his most famous images are here – including those of his muse, Lella – along with texts on the artist by writers Michel Tournier, Jacques Prévert and Marguerite Duras, as well as Boubat’s own writings and notebook excerpts.

Developed in close collaboration with Boubat’s son, Bernard, this authoritative collection will bring the work of this popular French photographer to an international audience.
