Here was a Vimeo video embedded…
In 1947 Henri Cartier Bresson founded Magnum Photos, an important cooperative photography agency with offices in London, Paris, Tokyo and New York.
A twitter friend pointed me to this video. Thank you @filosoof or Maurice Haak.
Update The video was dumped by Vimeo due to:
Sorry, “HENRI CARTIER-BRESSON – Decisive Moment, The” was deleted at 1:44:28 Wed Jun 15, 2011. Vimeo has removed or disabled access to the following material as a result of a third-party notification by Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson claiming that this material is infringing: HENRI CARTIER-BRESSON – Decisive Moment, The. We have no more information about it on our mainframe or elsewhere.
I’m an admirer of Henri Cartier Bresson, especially because I’m not very good in focusing myself. His photos are in many instances out of focus. He’s the millimeter artist. There is a lot to learn from him in this video.
