Pas besoin de présenter Doisneau à mes compatriotes. Je passe donc directement à la version Anglaise:0)
Robert Doisneau is, without a doubt, the most famous (and one of the most talented) French photographer of all times (with Henri Cartier-Bresson I guess). He is to the French photographic arts what McCurry, Lange or Arbus are to America’s…

Fantastic! Made me smile. To be able to capture moments like that!
In these heady days of digital photography, will evocative images like these survive to remind us of our past? The Doisneau images are charming, I love the young boy in his pedal car contrasted against the car wheel.
Qui n’a pas déjà reçu un petit mot d’amour écrit à l’envers d’une carte postale du « Baiser » de Doineau ? Doineau est à l’amour comme un poisson dans l’eau !
Love these because they are totally unstructured poses. They catch people “In the Act” of living. Those are always my favorite shots!
Me as well. I think too many people care for pictures that are technically perfect, when the best ones are about translation an emotion…
That face! The expression of the woman looking at the risque painting is just gold 🙂
I know. I love it too:)
Black and white make such amazing photographs, especially when the photographer is outstanding. The past is so beautiful. Thank you.
I’ll tell my mom she has a new fan:)
Absolutely LOVE!! Thank you for sharing Doisneau’s pictures!
You are welcome! He takes us to simpler better days. Doesn’t he?
Ah, so fun! Such interesting subjects he had! Thanks for sharing!
I agree whole heartedly.
