Lovers Through the Lens of Édouard Boubat

France’s most renowned romantic photographer, Édouard Boubat’s photographs are known to celebrate the beauty and simplicity of life, a thread that connects people’s daily life together. Deeply affected by World War II, Boubat’s photography represented exactly the mind of the photographer, as he put it: “Because I know war, because I know the horror, I don’t want to add it… After the war, we felt the need to celebrate life, and for me, photography was the means to achieve this.”
