Henri Cartier-Bresson Talks Photography June 8, 2011
Here’s a terrific 20-minute video that features Henri Cartier-Bresson — the father of modern photojournalism — talking about his views on photography and a selection of his amazing photographs. It’s both educational and inspiring.
The decisive moment, it is 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.– Henri Cartier-Bresson
If only there was one of these videos for every famous historical photographer!
Recorded in 1973 this is a great combination of photography and instruction with a large amount of inspiration thrown in for good measure
Update: The video seems to have gone away - what a shame!
