Emulating the romance and allure of Parisian culture, it’s a great irony that French photographer, Robert Doisneau learned his skills in pharmaceutical advertising. But his talent shined through to grace the pages of Life magazine and Paris Vogue. As a Resistance soldier and photographer in WWII, he forged papers and photo-documented the Occupation and Liberation of Paris. Doisneau photographed many artists including Picasso. His awards include the Prix Kodak and the Prix Niepce and he has been the subject of major retrospectives throughout Europe and US. A short film was made about his fascinating life in 1973.
