About the Author 
Born in Amsterdam, Ed van der Elsken(1925-90) is recognised as one of the great photographers of the century. His books include Bagara, Jazz, and the widely acclaimed Sweet Life. His last book, Hong Kong (Dewi Lewis, 1997) was published posthumously. His archive is held by Netherlands Foto Institute. Exhibited in 'Documenta'. Major shows throughout Europe including the Photographers' Gallery, London.  
Book Description 
This is a facsimile edition of one of the 'classic' photography books of the century. The book focuses on the left bank of Paris at a time when the area was recognised as a centre of creative ferment and the home of the artists, writers and aesthetes who would determine the cultural agenda of a generation. With its unconventional, gritty, snapshot-like technique the work was acclaimed as expanding the boundaries of documentary photography and became instrumental in the development of modern street photography.
