Young Couple Dancing in Paris, 1951
This photo was taken by French Photographer Robert Doisneau in 1951. There is not much information in regards to the setting and background of the photo other than it’s title “Be-bop en cave, Vieux Colombier” which translates to “Bebop Cellar , Vieux Colombier” . I kind of enjoy not knowing the background history of this photo and the circumstances around it, it leaves a bit of mystery to the imagination. I couldn’t help but notice that the woman dancing in this photo bears a striking resemblance to Katie Holmes.
The colorization of this photo was somewhat easier than expected, generally it is the opposite. I chose to leave the background dark rather than lighten everything up to keep the mood and focus of the two subjects. My full size colorization is below as well as the full size original black and white photo.
