City Gorged with Dreams: Surrealism and Documentary Photography in Interwar Paris

Some brief overview of book

The author analyses how the Surrealists utilised the tactics of documentary and how Surrealist ideas in turn influenced the development of documentary photography. The re-emergence of Surrealist photography, has an emphasis on work made in the studio or the darkroom. This, however, is a study of what Louis Aragon called surrealist realism: the exploration of a real-life surreality encountered on the streets of the city.
