Show synopsis Robert Doisneau, arguably one of the world's best-loved photographers, has created some of the most memorable and affecting images the world has ever seen. Who hasn't been moved by the simple beauty of "The Kiss, " or amused by Picasso playfully exhibiting his croissant fingers at the breakfast table? Doisneau's unique ability to capture life's most delicate and pure emotions renders his photographs universal and timeless. This classic volume features the best-known Doisneau's works from the forties and fifties, selected by the photographer himself. Accompanying those works is a revealign and beautifully written autobiographical essay that explores Doisneau's evolutions as an artist -- from his beginnings as an etcher, through the many phases of his career in advertising, industrial design, and the fashion world. Most importantly, Doisneau offers a moving explanation of his commitment to profiling the common man.
