Robert Doisneau 1950
French photographer Robert Doisneau was a pioneer of photojournalism. Renowned for his 1950 black and white photograph Le baiser de l'hôtel de ville (Kiss by the Hôtel de Ville), Dosineau beautifully captures a couple kissing in the busy streets of Paris. His modest, playful, and ironic images of amusing juxtapositions, mingling social classes, and eccentrics in Paris streets and cafes presents a charming vision of human frailty, and life as a series of quiet, incongruous moments. "The marvels of daily life are so exciting; no movie director can arrange the unexpected that you find in the street," said Doisneau himself
