I've been trying to really get into photography. If anyone has any good suggestions or favorites, let me know.
In my browsing today, I became fascinated with Robert Doisneau's photos. His work spans from the 40s, 50s, and beyond. They are wonderful shots of real life, but taken with a special eye. He has a way at looking at situations and turning them into art, with the angle, coloring, closeness, etc. He captures the moment to instill history, a great way to encapsulate the 1950s.
Check out some of his pictures.
