20th Century Life through the Lens of Parisian Photographer Robert Doisneau

Dappled light falls through a leafy tree onto the peaceful scene of a mother and her four children reading and writing at a folding table.

Correspondance à Joyeuse 1954

High sunlight and a low camera angle add drama to the image of a seated balding man, who with his left hand is lifting his glasses to read the book he is holding in his right.

Three boys seated at desks in a 1956 classroom. One is looking up at the clock.

“I don’t photograph life as it is, but life as I would like it to be,”
Robert Doisneau
1912-1994

I highly recommend a cup of tea or a glass of wine and a leisurely browse through the photographer’s portfolios.
