Discover Photographers: ROBERT DOISNEAU

Posted in people, Photographers, Photography with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on 1 September 2010 by paulrinder
 Robert Doisneau, one of France’s most popular and prolific reportage photographers, is known for his modest, playful, and ironic images of amusing juxtapositions, mingling social classes, and eccentrics in contemporary Paris streets and cafes. Influenced by the work of Kertesz, Atget, and Cartier-Bresson, in over 20 books Doisneau has presented a charming vision of human frailty and life as a series of quiet, incongruous moments. He has written: “The marvels of daily life are exciting; no movie director can arrange the unexpected that you find in the street.”

The Cycle Strongman Expedition

“It began with a dream to travel the world and grew into something extraordinary; to complete an unassisted, low emission, solo circumnavigation of the planet on a humble bicycle.

Having commenced in March 2009, the Cycle Strongman Expedition (CSX) is a test both physically and mentally. The eight year odyssey will involve cycling around the globe (covering Australia, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, Africa and the Americas), sailing across two oceans and eight seas and (if luck, health and good winds have it) all the way back home again.”
