Robert Doisneau

Robert Dosineau is a famous French photographer who many consider to be the pioneer of photojournalism.  His work often took place in the city of Paris with its accompanying streets and cafés creating the backdrop of his work.  His images have a playful air, with many focusing on children and their natural propenstiy for freedom.

One of his most famous works is Le baiser de l'hôtel de ville, a photograph which was published in Life magazine in 1950.

I love how his pictures evoke a certain romance.  They are immensely beautiful.
