Know more about Robert Doisneau :

R Doisneau  born on April 14, 1912 was famous for his lyrical approach to street photography. His most famous photograph Le baiser de l’hotel de ville (The Kiss by the Town Hall), a photo of a couple kissing in the busy streets of Paris shot in 1950 shows aspiring actors Francoise Delbart and Jacques Carteaud. . Doisneau was appointed a Chevalier (Knight) of the Legion of Honour in 1984.This is one of the four photographs that Google chose for its Robert Doisneau doodle.

Through the ’30s, Doisneau worked for Renault, the French auto giant; when he was fired (apparently for being chronically late), he struck out on his own. During World War II, he was conscripted in the army, and later helped forge passports for the Resistance. In the 1940s and 1950s, he settled in the perambulatory rhythm that yielded iconic images like the ones above. Doisneau died at the age of 81, on April 1, 1994, and he left behind an impressive collection of 4, 50,000 negatives.
