Robert Doisneau's photos are now part of the photographic heritage of the 20th century--even though he wasn't a war correspondent, or a fashion photoprapher, or a celebrity paparazzo. His photos are of people, scenes, and daily life. The focus is Paris, but the scope is worldwide. Some photos are classic, such as the lover's kiss outside the Hotel de Ville, in Paris. Others are unique in their own way, quiet, thoughtful, happy. They are in a way like the films of Jacques Tati, warm and human. This book of photos mixes both familiar and strange photos from his oeuvre, and in a large size. Perfect for framing. My favorite is of the poet Jacques Prevert sitting alone at a table on a Paris street, pondering--who knows what? Perhaps . . . the death of a poet.Was this review helpful?
