French Children Photographer

French Children Photographer

 

Landscape Photographer Ansel Adams is certainly a  photographer to explore but  even more in regard of someone who was massaging the prints as much as it needed to serve his taste. Surely someone who would be a pixel massage master these days. Than there are photographers as Cartier Bresson. There is a great deal of information you can find very easily on the internet of both celebrities. I like to venture out to introduce some of the lesser know but else wise equal image takers from different nations in the beginning of the history of photography as well some of today's  various photographers. Ere

Boubat  born in Paris, studied typography and graphic arts and worked for a printing company before becoming a photographer. He started out as a photographer after the war in 1946 and was awarded the Kodak Prize the following year.

He travelled the world for the French magazine ''Réalités'' and  worked as a freelance photographer as well. His uplifting and easy going images brought him the title of a peace correspondent by some of his friends and admirers.  He is known especially to  be an "Photographer With An Poetic Eye for Children".  

Mr. Boubat traveled widely during a career that lasted almost 50 years, unlike many other photographers of his generation his interest in political events as a photographic subject was very minimal. His rule, ''no bodies, no blood, no war,''  earned him the nickname as peace correspondent.

He was attracted by the beauty of life, wherever he found it. He liked photographing women, animals, trees and nature and especially children.  His use of light gave his work a special quality. Invariably the emotion evoked by his images is tenderness, as in one of his most popular photographs, ''La Petite Fille aux Feuilles Mortes.''
