Henri Cartier-Bresson L’amour tout courtroom Part1

Henri Cartier-Bresson “L’amour tout court” (“Just Plain Love” 2001) Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004) 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. Trained as a painter, he began his career in photography in 1931 on a trip to the Ivory Coast. He was one of the first photographers to shoot in the 35mm format with a Leica camera, and helped to develop the photojournalistic “street photography” style that influenced generations of photographers to come. It was there on the Côte d’Ivoire that he contracted blackwater fever, which nearly killed him. Returning to France, Cartier-Bresson recuperated in Marseille in 1931 and deepened his relationship with the Surrealists. He became inspired by a photograph by Hungarian photojournalist Martin Munkacsi artneutre.bitacoras.com Cartier-Bresson said: “The only thing which completely was an amazement to me and brought me to photography was the work of Munkacsi. When I saw the photograph of Munkacsi of the black kids running in a wave I couldn’t believe such a thing could be caught with the camera. I said damn it, I took my camera and went out into the street.” The photograph inspired him to stop painting and to take up photography seriously. He explained, “I suddenly understood that a photograph could fix eternity in an

    Definitely ‘On-Ree.’

    On ree Car tee ay bressoh < - that sound is kind of hard if you don’t know how French is pronounced, it’s like “on” but gets cut off and doesn’t end on a hard “n.” think of a stereotypical French laugh or something, it’s like that. :) (same with the “on” in the beginning of “Henri”)

    Great Great!!! i love M Henri-Cartier bresson

  8. 3atingfr3nzy says:

    No need to explain his work to those who cannot “see” it for themselves. Besides, what fun would it be without individual taste.

    Does anyone know the title of the piano background at 0:31?

    How is his name pronounced?

    – Hello – If you think that HCB is good, then have a look at Robert Doisneau. Personally I think Doisneau was streets ahead of HCB. I love B&W photography especially MF & LF work – my favourites are Robert Doisneau, Frank Meadow Sutcliffe and Ansel Adams. What camera do you use!

    Two people were jealous.

  13. PeteZ28 says:

    It’s a little of both. You have to have an eye for art, but like anything else technique takes time to develop. Just keep shooting and have fun!

  14. pemchem says:

    I’m taking a photography class. I like to think I have good taste when it comes to the content of my images, but it’s still amateurish. Do people like HCB already have the kind of photography gift that he has when they’re born, or does it develop over time? His photography is just incredible!

  15. MrPlaystationboy says:

    he invented street photography …and he does it Realy realy well .

    - Hi, The early boys did it with LF cameras, not to mention using the wet plate system. Ah yes, they were the good old days! !LOL, No light meter, no shutter (remove lens cap and guess). It must have been bloody hell.

  18. Morahman7vnNo2 says:

    I’d be funny if he were to attempt Street Photography with a 8×10 view camera on a heavy tripod.

    Just a thought, a funny thought.

  19. goinghomesomeday1 says:

    I disagree. Not wishing to be argumentative – he is more of a name than a photographer. In my opinion he was an over rated amateur with an attitude.

  20. makkein says:

    A photographer that’s truly second to none–absolutely amazing.
