French photographer whose photos of ordinary people were enormously popular. Doisneau's photographs are noted for their depth as well as for their humor. He worked as a commercial and industrial photographer and joined the French Resistance as a forger during WW II. His photographs of the liberation of France were published worldwide. After WW II, he worked for the Paris news agency Rapho as a photojournalist, his photographs appearing in countless newspapers and magazines. One particular photo taken in 1950 of two lovers stealing a kiss on a crowded Paris street has been reprinted on postcards, notes and posters.
Doisneau's technique bore a superficial resemblance to the "decisive moment" images of Henri Cartier-Bresson, but exhibited more genuine understanding of and sympathy for his subjects.
Doisneau died in 4/1/1994 in a hospital in Paris at age 81 of an infected pancreas, a complication of triple bypass surgery
