Robert Doisneau (3) – les enfants


Robert Doisneau

Messieurs de tout – Paris

 “Dans les rues de Paris

 l’enfant parle image et magie et

 dans les images innées de

 son langage imaginaire

 l’enfant découvre le monde…”

 A travers Prévert (l’ami de Doisneau)

This is the third of my compilations of Robert Doisneau’s images -and as a teacher, it is probably my favourite. The focus is on children and ther antics on the street and in school. Doisneau’s work gives unusual prominence and dignity to children’s street culture; returning again and again to the theme of children at play in the city, unfettered by parents. His work treats their play with seriousness and respect. In his honour, and owing to this, there are several Ecole Primaire (primary schools) named after him. An example is at Véretz (Indre-et-Loire).
