Henri Cartier-Bresson - My Heroes (cont.)

Considered by many to be the father of modern photojournalism, he was master of the "decisive moment" and one of the most prolific photographers to ever pick up a camera.

"Henri Cartier-Bresson is the great glory of twentieth - century photography. His poetic vision is reflected in the eyes of most photographers today, whether they realize it or not. In an age of vulgar photographic arrivistes, he remains the benchmark of profound eloquence and insight... We will not see again that kind of touching beauty in our lifetime." Duane Michals
