Les Halles Under the lens of Doisneau

Its in 1933 that the photographer Robert Doisneau immortalizes for the first time the Les Halles neighborhood. From the 30s to the 70s Doisneau wont stop photographing “Paris’s womb”, witnessing the evolution of parisian life in these years. A unique opportunity to learn a bit more about the history of Paris.
