Introduction to famous photographers:

 

Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004)

Bresson was a French photographer specialising in candid black and white street-style photography. He travelled the world taking photographs for the renowned Magnum Photos.

 

He often spoke about 'The Decisive Moment'. He would wait until the perfect moment to press the shutter release, resulting in perfectly composed, interesting and exciting shots which have become famous around the world.

 

Bresson had a rule where he would assess each element in his images (people, background, framing, composition) and would only keep them if all elements were perfect.

 

He liked to work as unobtrusively as he could, sometimes even covering his camera so as not to draw attention to his photography in order to create relaxed, natural, candid shots.

 

His photographs regularly make use of geometry in the scene/environment to give structure and pleasing aesthetics to his images. He would use lines and shapes in buildings, shadows and reflections to expertly compose and frame.
