Henri Cartier-Bresson

That’s right, he is a French man.

Cartier-Bresson is a world-class photojournalist who had the most amazing perspectives when taking photos.

He has inspired generations with his unique style of taking pictures. He is known most for his pictures that feature “the decisive moment,” which is a combination of a unique moment and has a touch of geometric patterns and shape with each piece.

Another part of Cartier-Bresson’s fame deals with his being a “street photographer.”

He would candidly shoot the picture and walk away, a lot of the time not even getting a name, just capturing everyday people just doing their thing.

His style influenced others all around the world and can be seen most with deep, great depth of field, foreground and background composition, lines and angles, as well as light and shadow using human forms.

During his time Cartier-Bresson traveled the world and was a founder of the Magnum photography agency. He passed away in 2004 but not before making a huge impact on the world of photojournalism.
