Henri Cartier-Bresson 1908-2004

Gelatin Silver Print, cm 30 x 40

The greatest photographer who ever lived has died.

Some of us may dislike socialism (though one doubts if they'd like working weekends, at any rate) while others (myself included) may yet believe in it — however the name for this blog comes to us from the Spanish Civil War, which Cartier-Bresson documented so vividly.

His greatness and his having been French aside, this is reason enough to mention his passing.
