Robert Doisneau – celebrity snapper?


I have already blogged about Doisneau’s street photography and as photographer of children. Now…celebrity snapper?

(ref:Peter Hamilton)

Of course he has covered many themes during his long career, but for this post I wanted to consider his work with celebrities of his time.

  1. It would be nice if you could credit the photographer whose portrait of Robert Doisneau is used on this page: © Peter Hamilton
