Photo professionals and art history buffs have surely fallen in love with French photographer Robert Doisneau long before I did ~ but no matter when in time, I’m glad I found him. Of course, we’ve all seen his work, but perhaps didn’t know the name behind the lens.
His work is rich, spontaneous, human story-telling at its photographic best. And, if by chance I needed anything more to endear me to his work, it’s black & white.
Robert Doisneau lived from 1912 – 1994. There’s a fabulous site about Doisneau and his work, here.
