Henri Cartier-Bresson: Living and Looking The journalist and filmmaker Sheila Turner-Seed interviewed Henri Cartier-Bresson in his Paris studio in 1971 for a film-strip series on photographers that she produced for Scholastic. After her death in 1979 at the age of 42, that interview, along with interviews that Ms.
Henri Cartier-Bresson: Vélodrome D’Hiver It’s almost unthinkable that any of Henri Cartier-Bresson’s photographs could ever have gone unpublished. The father of modern photojournalism had such a natural and easy understanding of his craft that all of his images offer the viewer snippets of an intriguing story – a slice of everyday narrative – rendered with the kind of precision that hoards of photographers since have sought to mimic. But in fact this is not the case. Until this month his sensational shots of the Vélodrome D’Hiver, from Paris 1957, have been lost to all but the most privileged eyes at Magnum . Incredible unpublished Henri Cartier-Bresson shots appear in the latest Rouleur

Sunday Salon » Henri Cartier-Bresson – the portraits This is going to be a slightly unusual Sunday Salon. The notion of doing a thorough salon on Henri Cartier-Bresson is too daunting. There’s simply far too much to cover—too much photography, too much of a life. To do even minimal justice to his life and work would require at least two—possibly three—normal salons. Instead, I’m going to narrow the scope of this salon.
Henri Cartier-Bresson: 'Red China' in Color, 1958 Henri Cartier-Bresson ' 50 s The French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908 – 2004) was influential in ways and on a scale that, in all likelihood, will never be repeated or matched by any other practitioner of the craft. So much of what the world now knows and recognizes as photojournalism, after all, was originally shaped by Cartier-Bresson’s work in the 1930s, and especially by the methodology he developed and pursued with his peers Robert Capa and David Seymour, or “Chim”: incessant travel, always with camera in hand; the search not for mere adventure, but for meaning in both conflict and in utterly quotidian calm; and finally, the hunt for specific, never-to-be repeated scenes, instances, gestures that would, in less than a heartbeat, tell a tale that no moving image or written word could possibly surpass.

7 Lessons from Famous Photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson Henri Cartier-Bresson is one of the most famous photographers in history. In fact, we’ve written about him as a famous photographer before.

His life was packed with adventure and excitement, which he translated into the body of work that we all love. But have you ever wondered what Cartier-Bresson could teach you, to help you reflect on your own work and become a better photographer? I was checking out a book of his images the other day and began wondering what some of these lessons might be.
Interview with Henri Cartier-Bresson – Famous Photographers Tell How (1958) HCB: To me, photography is a simultaneous recognition in a fraction of a second of a significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of form which gives that event its proper expression. I believe that, for reactive living, the discovery of oneself is made concurrently with the discovery of the world around us, which can mold us, but which can also be affected by us.
