Robert Doisneau was born in Gentilly in the Val-de-Marne, in France. He studied engraving at the Ecole Estienne in Chantilly, but decided his training was antiquated and useless upon graduation. He learned photography in the advertising department of a pharmaceutical firm. He began photographing details of objects in 1930 and he sold his first photo-story to the Excelsior newspaper in 1932.
Mr. Doisneau worked for the Rapho photo agency for several months until he was drafted in 1939. He was a member of the Resistance both as a soldier and as a photographer, using his engraving skills to forge passports and identification papers. He photographed the Occupation and Liberation of Paris. Immediately after the war he returned to freelance work for Life and other leading international magazines. He joined the Alliance photo agency for a short time and has worked for Rapho since 1946. Against his inclinations, Mr. Doisneau did high-society and fashion photography for Vogue Paris from 1948 to 1951. In addition to his reportage, he has photographed many French artists including Giacometti, Cocteau, Leger, Braque, and Picasso.
