A dazzling, stylish biography of a fabled Parisian photographer, adventurer, and pioneer. Of all of the legendary figures who thrived in midth-century Paris—a cohort that includes Victor Hugo, Baudelaire, Gustave Courbet, and Alexandre Dumas—Nadar was perhaps the most innovative, the most restless, the most modern.
The first great portrait photographer, a pioneering balloonist, the first person to take an aerial photograph, and the prime mover behind the first airmail service, Nadar was one of the original celebrity artist-entrepreneurs. A kind of 19th-century Andy Warhol, he knew everyone worth knowing and photographed them all, conferring on posterity psychologically compelling portraits of Manet, Sarah Bernhardt, Delacroix, Daumier and countless others—a priceless panorama of Parisian celebrity.
With his daring exploits aboard his humongous balloon including a catastrophic crash that made headlines around the world , he gave his friend Jules Verne the model for one of his most dynamic heroes. At their fabled salons, they inspired the creativity of several generations of writers, visual artists, composers, designers, and journalists. Publisher : Folio Junior.

Nous en sommes tout aussi loin chez Balzac, et pour des raisons voisines. De Victor Hugo, de Nodier, de Fourier, les gloires de la ville, il n'en est pas question, on ne s'en occupe pas.

Et rien d'autre que trois ou quatre moulins de bois, sur leur pied de charpente, les ailes immobiles. Les toits sont presque plats; il n'y a pas de neige l'hiver. Finally, the Proverbe turc, an environmental installation of 40 pairs of bronze shoes, reflects its mystery in the warm, leather-coloured patina. Just before the birth of God, his elder brother by a few thousand years, was already working creatively. He was trying to make "things" to break the sadness and loneliness of heaven. It was a kind of self-therapy, a way of working a bit like that of good artists today.
His idea was, according to some reconstructions based on the latest excavations, to create two "things" without any link between them a priori but which in the end turned out to have some. Our research has led us to classify the set of objects found into two categories, in like manner to separating nuts from bolts. Indeed, nuts and bolts have no real link between them but if one wants, one can join them together and take them apart; ie. Let us return to the young god, doubtless more skilled than his brother, but above all an unforgivable arriviste, a kind of Mac Giver.
He stole the idea of his elder brother and started secretly to work on his first attempts of Adam. When his brother, the real artist and humanist, discovered the worldly and mannerist moulds of his younger brother, he withdrew with his creations to a black cloud and died of dehydration before falling as rain on the earth Von Oben we will soon be able to provide documents that will revolutionise our era!
