Robert Doisneau (France: 1912-1994)

He is known for his street photography, and is considered a pioneer of photojournalism along with Henri Cartier-Bresson. He captured the daily life of Parisians, and searched for the surreal in everyday life. In 1948, he began work for French Vogue, but his passion was photojournalism, and returned to the streets of Paris in 1951. Doisneau has been the subject of major retrospectives at the bibliotheque National in Paris, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the George Eastman House in Rochester, NY. His photographs have become widely recognized and beloved in the history of photography.
