  • Romantic people always considered, that the photo was made spontaneous, but actually it was posed. Robert Doisneau made this photo in 1950, when he worked with photo reportage about French lovers. The couple at the photo – FransuazaBrone and her boyfriend Jack Karto, who posed to the photographer with pleasure. He met them near the college where they were studying. Then the photo was forgotten in the library of Life magazine, and only 30 years later it was founded by a company that produced posters. From that moment the image became so popular, that many couples announced, that it were they on the photo. But Fransuaza proved that it was she at the photo 40 years later – she showed the original image, signed by the photographer. She sold the photo by auction for 155 thousand euro! It was 10 times more than she expected! She had parted with her boyfriend for a long time ago, got married and then she was going to start up a film production company.

    6. 6. StyleThe Helicopters is a clever illustrationof his spur-of-the- moment style ofphotography in which Doisneau would siton a street corner and wait. Hispersonal philosophy was, "wherever yougo, somethings about to happen." Atjust the right moment, Doisneaucomposed this photograph, whichappears as though it was plannedbecause of the careful balance offorms in the composition. Doisneau hasalso created several interestingcontrasts such as those betweentechnology and art. Doisneaus TheHelicopters also contains an element ofhumor as the helicopters immediatelyappear to have just discharged onMaillols statue, The Three Nymphs,found in the gardens of the Louvre.

    11. 11. Humour
    12. 12. ChildrenSome of Doisneaus most appealing photographsare those of French childhood - perhaps the bestever taken. He took photos on the street as wellas homes and schools. Some were candid. Otherswere posed. As he photographed extensively fromthe 1930s-50s, his photos record not only thetexture of French, but developing fashionpatterns before, during, and after World War II.The images provide a wonderful record of theclothes sworn by children during the period.

    18. 18. The RecipeDoisneau writes of his photography, "Infact there isnt any recipe - that wouldbe too easy - but all these images thatare growing old so gracefully were takeninstinctively. I put all my trust inintuition, which contributes so muchmore than rational thought.."
    19. 19. He took thousands of photographs striving to capture the pulse of Parisianlife. Doisneau liked nothing better than to walk the streets never knowingwhat sights he was to encounter.Doisneaus work has been enormously influential on many photographers andfilm directors. His talent lay in his ability to capture a moment of poignancy,absurdity or just plain strangeness.Doisneaus work contained a distinctive sense of humour as well as a deepempathy for his subjects.Doisneau was in many ways a shy and unassuming man, rather like hisphotography. He lived in the Paris suburb of Montrouge. He died in 1994.
