Product Overview

A previously unpublished collection of Robert Doisneau?s color photography provides a unique opportunity to revisit the early years of one of America?s legendary holiday destinations. In 1960, Robert Doisneau was invited by Fortune magazine to cover Palm Springs, the hottest travel destination of the day. Renowned as a playground for the rich and famous, as well as for a silver-haired and well-heeled clientele, it was a world of swimming pools awash with bobbing beehives, martini-fueled parties, and relaxed games of golf, all unfolding against a desert backdrop. There, Doisneau took hundreds of photographs, twenty-three of which were published in the magazine. The rest have been rediscovered in his archives and one hundred are featured here for the first time. Doisneau is best known for his black and white portraits of Parisian street scenes. This rare color collection?which is supplemented with a facsimile reproduction of Doisneau?s original Fortune article?offers a new perspective on his photographic legacy. Accompanying these nostalgic images are extracts from the photographer?s personal correspondence?small masterpieces of derision and self-derision in which he describes being marooned in the "world capital of winter golf"?and an equally amusing introduction written by award-winning French novelist Jean-Paul Dubois.
