Among his most famous image is "Kiss by the Hôtel de Ville" a photo of a couple kissing in the streets of Paris. The identity of the couple was a mystery until 1993, when Denise & Jean-Louis Lavergne took Doisneau to court for taking the photo without their knowledge This action prompted Doisneau to reveal that he posed the shot in 1950 using actor/models Françoise Bornet and Jacques Carteaud. Françoise was given an original print as part payment.  April 2005 Françoise sold the print for 155,000 at auction

the woman on the bench watches. The policeman looks on as if about to tell
the woman something - all the while the child at left looking for her lost parents
