Happy 100th Birthday, Robert Doisneau!

Like a lot of wistful, dreamy girls, I used to have Robert Doisneau’s “Kiss by the Hotel de Ville” hanging over my bed.

While it’s perhaps the photographer’s most famous picture, I’m glad I eventually dug deeper into his work and discovered the wealth of moments he captured.

Finding the extraordinary in the ordinary has always been one of my fascinations – and I think it was one of his, too.

“I like people for their weaknesses and faults. I get on well with ordinary people,” he once said.

Here’s a lovely montage of some of his amazing photos. I love the song, too – and was surprised it was sung by Carla Bruni! (Sarkosy’s wife).

Happy 100th birthday, Robert Doisneau. You made life look so beautiful (it is!)


paris (im)perfect?

Sion Dayson is paris (im)perfect. Writer, dreamer, I moved to France on – no exaggerating – a romantic whim. As you can imagine, a lot can go wrong (and very right!) with such a (non)plan. These are the (im)perfect stories that result.

Share the love!
