Doisneau brings '35 originals prints'

A photographic exhibition 35 tirages originaux ("35 original prints") by French photographer Robert Doisneau will be held at Alliance Française de Colombo from July 2 to 23.

Doisneau was born in the suburb of Paris. He had been attached to his origin throughout his life.

He studied engraving but his original work had been involved with photography. He worked for the Renault Car Company for several years before being fired for being constantly late.

Several years later he joined the Rapho Agency. He is regarded as one of the members of "l'École de Paris", group of humanist photographers.

Doisneau's work is mainly dealing with human subjects in Paris and suburb. His friends and models were, for example, the poet Jacques Prévert and the cellist Maurice Baquet. Philippe Salaün who has been Doinseau's printer for many years had stated recently, "As you already know, after my modest exhibition in June, I shall leave the walls of the Alliance Française de Colombo in July to one of the great masters of the 20th century photography: Robert Doisneau."

Robert Doisneau's exhibition at Alliance Française de Colombo is unique and outstanding because it is really the first time that this kind of exhibition takes place in Colombo and because it shows original prints.

The opening which will be held on July 2 will welcome the printer and the French Ambassador as guests of honour.
