Robert Doisneau, one of my favorite photographers, will exhibit his works in Monza in the Dell’Arengario Palace (Piazza Roma, 20052 Monza).
At his time, this photographer has inspired me to pursue photography and his shots force me no go on and look for the subtlest and most wonderful kind, by capturing moments of simple human happiness.
Robert is also called the master of the French humanist photography. During his career as a photographer, he has never been categorized under any style, although he approached vanguard and surrealism. Robert’s shots are something special: streets and real life, moments captured on film.
“Miracles of everyday life are amazing. There is no such a film director who can arrange something waiting for you outside.”
You’ll probably be familiar with the photography “Kiss at the Hotel de Ville”, realized in 1950, one of the symbols of Paris. The picture shows actors, which Doisneau asked to pose for the photo. The photo was published in Life magazine 12 June edition 1950. Robert then admitted: “I would have never dared to photograph people by this way. Shots of lovers kissing on the street rarely could be legal.”
Now in in the Dell’Arengario Palace of Monza (just 30 km from Milan) from March 19 to July 3 there will be exposed 80 works of Robert Doisneau. The exhibition is called ” Le merveilleux quotidien ” / Daily miracles.
The photographer has often said that he photographs where there is nothing to watch. However, in his photographs we see his fine form of observing and love for all that is happening every day of this wonderful life.
I’m really in love with Doisneau. His Paris – is a special city, full of love for every detail and every person.
“I tried to show a world in which I would feel confident, where people are friendly, where can I get those good feelings, that I have always tried. My photos prove that such a world could exist.”
