Perhaps best for his famous 1950 image of a couple kissing on the streets of Paris—Le baiser de l'hôtel de ville (Kiss by the Town Hall)—Robert Doisneau, along with Henri Cartier-Bresson, was a pioneer of photojournalism. Doisneau captured unassuming images of street life around Paris, as well as working on prestigious advertising and photojournalism campaigns. “The marvels of daily life are so exciting; no movie director can arrange the unexpected that you find in the street,” he once said. Recruited as both a soldier and photographer for the French resistance at the outbreak of the Second World War, Doisneau also produced images of France in wartime.
