Item description for Paris Living Rooms by Andree Putman Dominique Nabokov...

Photographer Dominique Nabokov has documented the living rooms of well-known Parisians - artists, writers, designers, intellectuals, and the occasional celebrity. The rooms vary widely from one another in terms of formality and decor, but they are all equalized under the gaze of Nabokov's camera. Each room is shot simply as it happened to appear on that particular day, without any people. Using discontinued Polaroid Colorgraph type 691 film, (which provides a full-color transparency in four minutes), Nabokov does not use special lighting, or allow the rooms to be rearranged or touched by a stylist. The result is a series of fascinatingly deadpan photos that puts an ironic slant on the celebrity interior genre. These peeks into the living rooms of celebrated Parisians will provide hours of voyeuristic pleasure. The book includes more than seventy living rooms of such diverse Parisians as Jean-Paul Goude, Andree Putman, Christian Liaigre, Ingrid Caven, Jeanne Moreau, Victoire de Castellane, Loulou de la Falaise, and Jacques Grange, to name a few.

Reviews - What do customers think about Paris Living Rooms?

Original coverage, second in series  Feb 26, 2003
This book is an original. Ms. Nabokov uses special film (purposely chosen, from a lot of film no longer available) to document various creative people's living rooms--people who are rich and some who are not so rich. She did a similar book called "New York Living Rooms." The rooms have no people in them, and Ms. Nabokov prefers owners would do no touch up of their spaces, when notified that she will be photographying their living rooms. The people covered are jazz players, designers, literary people--many names one would recognize. There is a subtlety to her technique. When I saw "NY Living Rooms," I snatched it up, and could not wait for "Paris Living Rooms." I was not disappointed. Going through the book puts me in a reverie of sorts. Some rooms are natural and show they are not the work of design "experts," whereas others are worthy of design magazines. The common element is that the personality of the owner shows through, even without the person being present. The combination of high end and low end makes for interesting viewing, and also makes me feel a bit like a voyeur, looking into someone's living room, unobserved. I will buy any future volumes by Ms. Nabokov.
limited appeal  Dec 18, 2002
When you found this book, I hope you were not expecting beautiful photos of French Country or Classic styles of interior design. Instead, this book is the equivalent of a bad art house movie. It has out-of-focus pictures of grungy looking rooms taken at unflattering camera angles in bad lighting.

If you are someone who likes to polish up "diamonds in the rough," you may like this book. Because I think only people that can look at junk and find some intrinsic value in it will like this book. However, those people will probably like the book titled Big City Junk better.
