Doisneau - Renault - 1988

On the occasion of an exhibition of photographs by Robert Doisneau (November 16, 1988 - January 22, 1989) was published a catalogue distinctive by its format in-12 and its unique and large case formed by two Renault red iron plates collated by five bolts. The diamond-shaped symbol of the French car company is laid on each plate with the name of the photographer. With the reproduced photographs now cults is proposed an interview in which Doisneau recalls those pictures : "Renault was for me the true beginning of my career as a photographer and the end of my youth".

Currently, the librairie Loliée offers :

  • Doisneau (Robert). Renault. Paris, Hazan, 1988, in-12. Folder of red iron with a logo reproducing the one of Renault but mentioning the name of the photographer. Text and pictures by Robert Doisneau.
