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.

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

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