Canal Foundation presents this exhibition focusing on Robert Doisneau (Gentilly, France, 1912 – 1994, Montrouge, France), one of the most emblematic photographers of the 20th century, who succeeded in immortalising the lifestyle of the French capital of the era and persisted in portraying the beauty of life.
A selection of 110 photographs covering his interesting work delves into the spirit of the artist, from his first photograph taken in 1929 at the age of 17 to the last decades of his life in which he captured themes such as the Banlieue (suburbs of Paris), blue-collar work, leisure, architecture or childhood, among others.
In spite of living through a tough period of world history (the Great Depression, the two world wars), all of his work is marked by hope and the desire for a better life, by the silent yet constant conviction of the capacity of the human being. His calm and bright style has at times been called "poetic realism".
