André Pozner was born in 1943 in Berkeley, California. Over the years, he pursued various professions including chief editor at Zoom magazine, unemployment, songwriting and book publishing. Vladimir Pozner (1905–1992) was an important writer who valued discretion. A friend of Gorki, he had ties to Babel and Mayakovsky , helping to make Russian literature known in France in the 1920s. His work as a novelist got off to a flying start in the 1930s with Tolstoï est mort and Le Mors aux dents. A militant antifascist, he took refuge in the US during the war. A globe-trotter, storyteller, and pioneer of literary form, Pozner devoted his life and his unique voice to bearing witness to his century.

The most famous photographer? Now, perhaps. But during his lifetime, was he the gentle one, the lucky one, the humorist, the humanist? Certainly not. André Pozner shares his memories, describing in words and images his Doisneau years—which are also his Prévert years, for it was at Jacques Prévert’s home that they met. The three of them went for longwalks, the conversation jumping fromone subject to another. Doisneau the photographer became the photographed. A group of friends with Paris as the setting. André Pozner profiles an artist who blazed a trail in the years after the turbulence of May 1968. Far from providing a romantic vision, Doisneau’s cities and suburbs hit us with their hard greyness. What’s brilliant is his eye, the emotions he strives to convey: love, humour, and especially resistance. The resistance of a little fellow smiling beneath his velvet cap, who hated injustice and said: “There are times when you work like a barbarian, with a virtually animalistic need to do things, without thinking. These are times of great creativity.”
