I love Robert Doisneau. I fell in love with his pictures when I first visited Paris on my own and saw the B&W postcards for the first time. When I was in Rome last year, I was lucky enough to find a Doisneau exhibition in the Palazzo delle Esposizioni called "Paris en libertÚ". Simply magnificent! The only bad thing: There were no postcards or posters for sale
This is a shot of the Palazzo delle Esposizioni.
"The Palazzo delle Esposizioni is a neoclassical exhibition hall, cultural center and museum on Via Nazionale in Rome.
Designed by Pio Piacentini, it opened in 1883. It has housed several exhibitions (e.g. Mostra della Rivoluzione Fascista, Mostra Augustea della RomanitÓ), and was temporarily modified during the fascist era due to its style being thought to be out of step with the times."
"Robert Doisneau, 14 April 1912 ľ 1 April 1994) was a French photographer. In the 1930s he used a Leica on the streets of Paris. He and Henri Cartier-Bresson were pioneers of photojournalism. He is renowned for his 1950 image Le baiser de l'h˘tel de ville (Kiss by the Town Hall), a photograph of a couple kissing in the busy streets of Paris. Doisneau was appointed a Chevalier (Knight) of the Legion of Honour in 1984."
