Robert Doisneau, French photographer,

Robert Doisneau was a French photographer born on April 14, 1912 in Gentilly, Val-de-Marne. He was a photojournalistic photographer; focusing most of his life’s work recording the eccentricities of daily life in the streets of Paris. He liked to say “I never noticed time passing, I was too taken up with the spectacle afforded by my contemporaries, that gratuitous, never-ending show for which no ticket is needed, and when the occasion arose, I offered them, in passing, the ephemeral solace of an image.” Throughout the years of his long career, Doisneau documented, “the ordinary gestures of ordinary people in ordinary situations.”
