April 14, 2012 marks 100th birth anniversary of famous French photographer Robert Doisneau, who is renowned for his 1950 image Le baiser de l’hôtel de ville (Kiss by the Town Hall).

And celebrating Doisneau’s birthday, Google prepared a special homepage doodle depicting his well-known photographs. 

All through his life, Robert Doisneau did not follow any photography direction, and he did not found any creative school.  

To note, Françoise Bornet—the heroine in Le baiser de l’hôtel de ville—sold the print at auction for 155,000 euros in April 2005.
