Group Description

A tribute to the great Master of Photography, Henri Cartier Bresson
If it's impossible to be equal, at least we can try to follow his spirit...

from Wikipedia
Henri Cartier-Bresson (August 22, 1908 – August 3, 2004) was a French photographer considered to be the father of modern photojournalism, an early adopter of 35 mm format, and the master of candid photography. He helped develop the "street photography" style that has influenced generations of photographers that followed.

The simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as the precise organization of forms which gives that event its proper expression... . In photography, the smallest thing can be a great subject. The little human detail can become a leitmotif - Henri Cartier-Bresson


What reinforces the content of a photograph is the sense of rhythm
– the relationship between shapes and values. - Henri Cartier-Bresson, Photography Year 1980, LIFE Library of Photography

To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge
to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that
mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.
-Henri Cartier-Bresson

Photography appears to be an easy activity; in fact it is a varied
and ambiguous process in which the only common denominator among
its practitioners is in the instrument. - Henri Cartier-Bresson

Memory is very important, the memory of each photo taken, flowing
at the same speed as the event. During the work, you have to be
sure that you haven't left any holes, that you've captured
everything, because afterwards it will be too late. - Henri
Cartier-Bresson - American Photo, September/October 1997
