Black and White World


As many of you may have noticed whilst Googling your favorite celebrity gossip or low-cal recipes, today is the 100th anniversary of the birth of French photographer Robert Doisneau, a titan in the world of black-and-white photography and all around bad-ass image capturer. 


Google's Doisneau "doodle"


It's been an embarrassingly long time since I've made a post (well over a month, I know) and I thought I'd ease back into things with a quick "best-of" of Doisneau's images.  Many of his works are iconic and I encourage you to check out more of his work either online or stop into the John Cleary Gallery and see them in person!
