  • #864 - Robert Doisneau

    Le Baiser de l'Opéra, 1950
    #864 - Robert Doisneau

    “Life is short. Break the rules. Forgive quickly, kiss slowly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that made you smile. The world I was trying to present was one where I would feel good, where people would be friendly, where I could find the tenderness I longed for. My photos were like a proof that such a world could exist.”


    ~ Robert Doisneau

  • #863 - Edouard Boubat

    Le Pont Neuf, Paris, 1948
    #863 - Edouard Boubat
    “Every photo is my first photo. I have avoided nothing, roads, trains, plains, tiredness, departures, passions, morning light, desire for others, life. People often ask me “How did you begin?” I like to answer: “With light". I look out every morning, like a farmer, at the grey and white sky of Paris. I wake with the promise of sunshine”

    ~ Edouard Boubat(1923 - 1999)
  • #847 - Harry Benson

    Beatles Composing, Paris, 1964
    #847 - Harry Benson

    “It seemed John and Paul could compose anywhere.They would wander over to the piano, sit down and start playing, taking no notice of what was going on around them. Here in their George V Hotel suite they were composing “I Feel Fine”. George and Ringo wandered over and started to join in. It was fascinating to watch how intense they were while creating a song"

    ~ Harry Benson
