The hidden treasures of Doisneau


Am I lucky? Yes, a little bit! Yesterday evening (Monday), I had the opportunity of going to the opening of a great exhibition, where several unknown photos by Doisneau were presented! How is that possible? Well simply because he took a zillion shots and it's only recently that his daughters decided to dig them out from where they were sleeping... Stunning as always, but you have to go to the Artcurial gallery (at the bottom of Les Champs Elysées) to see them all ;-)

  2. I think this is one of the great photos of Eric for the next PDP calendar 2013

  3. An exhibit like that is reason in itself to go to Paris. The champagne is another reason.

  4. I really love this photo as well - the first thing that jumped out at me was the beautiful light. The composition is lovely, too. You know, Eric, we Doisneau what we'd do without you! ;)

  9. The shot shows the once sleeping ladies dancing out of the champagne - lovely way to awaken!

  13. Oh yeah, you are one lucky son-of-a-gun (comme on dit ici). Hope those photos have been well preserved while they were sleeping. Yours is fabulous, btw!

  16. Oh yes, that's lucky. I love the guy. I can almost "see" the Paris he shot, or fill in the blanks. Paris didn't change that much for a while [except for the Pompidou Center I guess], then it looks like everything happened all at once in the 80's and beyond.

  17. Thanks for this M.Tenin. Once again there's a slight coincidence; I've just seen the Doisneau exhibition at the Hôtel de Ville where he shows 'the hole' of Les Halles, and now history is repeating itself. Funny!
