Robert Doisneau - Un Regard Oblique

In ‘Un Regard Oblique’, Doisneau captures two images that work with each other. The painting is clearly captured enough to tell its story, yet doesn’t distract from the main subject matter. That is, the couple looking though the window of an art store/gallery. The man is looking at the nude painting, which is funny as his wife doesn’t even glance that way. The people in the back add a sub-story of another happening, making this image very interesting. I like Doisneau’s images that have a shallow depth-of-field, because it draws the focus to the main characters, but still acknowledges them by making them blurred.
