Robert Doisneau and Hedgehogs

April 14 is 100 years since Robert Doisneau was born, so I thought it’d be fun to highlight a few of his lesser known works. I recently saw the movie “Hedgehog” and while scrolling through some of Doisneau’s work at Atelier Robert Doisneau, I found a set of concierge photos. Quelle chance!

La concierge est dans l'escalier

Parisian concierge, 1964

Muriel Barbery’s novel about a concierge, The Elegance of the Hedgehog, is a great read with lots of literary and art references, a precocious girl, and a cranky concierge.
