Life can be a beautiful thing. Just look at the photographs of Robert Dosineau. His eye sees a world is full of dancing couples and playful children. All captured with a wry sense of humor and consummate sense of style.
The son of a plumber killed in the First World War, Doisneau was orphaned from the age of 7 and lived with his unloving Aunt.
Like many who grow up in a loveless household he developed and acute sense of the emotional state of others, capturing the fun and romance of everyday life with aplomb.
His most famous picture ‘The Kiss by the Town Hall’ has been reproduced a gazillion times and is one of the most famous images in photographic history.
In 1992 it was revealed to be a staged shot rather than a genuine moment of candid passion. This hasn’t stop Doisneau from being considered one of the most influential and pioneering photojournalists of the 20th century. His work still continues to charm and seduce to this very day.
