Robert Doisneau – Palazzo Roverella, Italy
23 Sep — 30 Jan 2022
The fisherman of moments
An exhibition dedicated to a fisherman. This is how he liked to call himself Robert Doisneau (1912-1994), a master of photography who was able to portray the Parisian society of the 20th century with empathy, capturing moments of grace and expressions of happiness.
Artist or photojournalist, Doisneau has left us images capable of making us smile and, at the same time, shaking our hearts, for his approach to humanity was far more complex than the simple lightness that we tend to associate with his pictures.
“Actually,” he said, “my true passion is fishing; photography is just a hobby”.
The hobby of one of the past century’s greatest photographers.
