Robert Doisneau (1912-1994) is best known for his magical, timeless 35mm street portraits taken in Paris and its suburbs.
Fresh, unstaged, and full of poetry and humor, his photographs portrary everyday people (in everyday places, doing everyday things) frozen in time, unwittingly revealing fleeting personal emotions in a public context. Doisneau's gift was the ability to seek out and capture, with humanity and grace, those little epiphanies of everyday Parisian life.
This book traces Doisneau's life and career, providing a wonderful introduction to the work of this seminal photographer.
