Édouard Boubat worked as a photo engraver before he began taking photographs in 1946. He sought to make photographs that were a celebration of life. He worked as a freelance photojournalist on contract with the magazine "Réalités" in the 1950s and 1960s and traveled widely throughout his career. His work is in the collections of numerous museums and institutions around the world.
