Robert Doisneau has long been regarded as the most representative portraiture artist ahead of others of the picturesque Paris. On September 7th, Robert Doisneau - Paris Gateway opens at Kulturhuset, the Culture House City Theater, the first exhibition in Sweden with Doisneau's photographs.

 

Robert Doisneau (1912-1994) is the image genious that captured the simple beauty of a split moment, as well as collections of little moments that together told a whole story. As when he photographed the couple in La Baiser de l'hotel de ville (1950). The embrace was staged, the kiss real.

 

But it was in the rough surroundings of the suburbs where he built his own scene. The most everyday reality was obtained by framing, light and narrative, a poetic aura and a well-liked vodacity.

 

The exhibition is produced by the City Hall Theater and DiChroma Photography, Madrid.
