Edouard Boubat was born in France in 1923. He studied printing and design at the Ecole Estienne in Paris before taking up photography in 1946. The following year he was recognized with the Kodak Prize. In 1951, Boubat began working as a photojournalist for Réalités magazine in Paris, a post he would occupy for 17 years. In 1968 he left Réalités to work freelance. He was awarded the Grand Prix National de la Photographie in 1984. Edouard Boubat died in 1999, in France."
I see so many similarities between the two artists, except Anna Gaskell is more contemperary of course. They tell stories with their subjects, often children. They also often photograph in black and white. Gaskell seems to be more narrative in her photography, while Boubat is in the moment.
