Henri Cartier-Bresson 1908-2004


Classic photographers

Henri Cartier-Bresson is dead. The New York Times has an extended obituary, as has The Economist.

It’s hard to say something about HCB that hasn’t been said already. Given he was a master photographer I think it is enough to let his photos speak: Selected Portraits, assembled for a show in the National Portrait Gallery. A small selection of his work at Peter Fetterman Gallery; another small selection.

Also see these selections on Magnum’s website: photos of HCB, landscapes, and an amazing retrospective.
