The featured photographer was a pioneer in humanist photography, a movement that emerged in post-war France. The movement sought to authentically and empathetically document the human condition. He focused on documenting everyday moments as well as the range of human emotions. His unique style was characterised by his immense sensitivity and ability to find poetry in even the most mundane things. His photographs let the viewer peek into the universal experience – depicting images of busy Parisian streets as well as intimate moments between lovers.
