The book was published on the occasion of the exhibition for the centenary of the birth of Jean Dieuzaide published with  Les Éditions de Juillet in 2021.

« “For a long time, Jean Dieuzaide has been presented as a photographer of reality, the witness of fleeting moments of happiness, the craftsman of photographs embodying the harmony of the world and the transmitter of the nobility of human works. (…) Playing the rest of his score in fertile reframings, Dieuzaide brings out unexpected characters, singular portraits in keeping with their legend. Dali, flowers with moustache, shepherd’s crook under his arm, in direct connection with his myth. Portraits of the people too, on market day, returning from fishing or hunting. The most accomplished in their flamboyant simplicity, their sovereign gravity : The Sacromonte Gypsy, The little rabbit girl, became iconic. »
