One of France’s most respected and prolific photojournalists, Doisneau delighted in photographing life on the street: nighttime revelers, beggars, artists, dancers, pub-goers, and young lovers.

He was not a “street photographer” because he composed his pictures. He planned them, waited for them to occur, or set them up, case in point, the famous Baiser de l’Hôtel de Ville.
