Robert Doisneau, a Parisian in Rome


If you don’t know Robert Doiseneau we are sure you know the image illustrating this post.

Doisneau is a legendary photographer, famous for his special relationship with Paris and his keen eye for the unusual. “I don’t photograph life as it is, but life as I would like it to be”, he said once.

Given Doisneau’s knack for the surreal is almost ironic that his most famous image is  touching but at the same time  ordinary and as old as mankind. Maybe it just goes to prove that love can be as good as anything we wan imagine.

The Exposition Robert Doisneaau, Paris in Liberté will take place  from September 29 at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni, located only a short walk away from Hotel Des Artistes or Yes Hotel.
