Born on this day – Robert Doisneau

‘I like people for their weaknesses and faults. I get on well with ordinary people. We talk. We start with the weather, and little by little we get to the important things. When I photograph them it is not as if I were examining them with a magnifying class, like a cold and scientific observer. It’s very brotherly. And it’s better, isn’t it, to shed some light on those people who are never in the limelight.’

Robert Doisneau (French photographer) – April 14, 1912 – April 1, 1994.

As an old friend of my wife’s used to say ‘money is never wasted on books or pork products’

I picked these three up on Sunday from a shop at one of the local tourist traps… None were priced and I was pleasantly surprised to be told £15 for the lot!

I’ve a horrible feeling that ‘The Hasselblad Way’ will only aggravate an itch I’ve had for a while to own such a thing…
