One of the most influential photographers, Henri Cartier-Bresson introduced a new way of seeing, of photographing and telling a story with images. The style was a photojournalism approach where the photographer does not engage or direct a pose but observes, composes and captures what naturally presents itself. A master of light, composition and design, his images are inspirational with a profound depth of emotion. You get the sense of the surroundings – its fleeting sensations. It’s a moment in time forever frozen. Cartier-Bresson’s written contributions include “The Decisive Moment” which can be found in The Mind’s Eye – an insightful collection of his thoughts and philosophy.
