"The more I see of man, the more I love my dog." - {Pascal}

Here is a lovely collection of photographs of Parisian dogs and their Parisian owners...sitting, walking, eating, and loving together. Each decade of the last century is represented, but there's something about the 1950s which makes Paris and its dogs so collectively bourgeois. From Edouard Boubat's cover shot of a pampered but contemplative poodle hanging with his newspaper-reading human to Robert Doisneau's photo of a camera-aware terrier, the B&W stills show a timeless city.

"Deceived by the world, never by my dog." - {Paris tombstone}

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0811807436, Hardcover)

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.
