Édouard Boubat, 1923

There are certain pictures I can never take. We turn on the TV and are smothered with cruelty and suffering and I don’t need to add to it. So I just photograph peaceful things. A vase of flowers, a beautiful girl. Sometimes, through a peaceful face, I can bring something important into the world.
-Edouard Boubat

French photographer Edouard Boubat was born on this day in 1923 in Montmartre, Paris. He became a photojournalist after World War II with the goal of celebrating life. He studied at L’Ecole Estienne and won the Kodak Prize in 1947. Boubat also won the Grand Prix National de la Photographie in 1984.
