Conversation with Henri Cartier-Bresson

A nice conversation with Henri Cartier-Bresson:


HCB Exhibition in Rome

An Italian TV piece on a Henri Cartier-Bresson exhibit at a museum in Rome.

"Look there, where others only know how to see." This phrase captures the essence of the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson, his unmistakable stylistic diversity of his approach to photography, his relationship with the camera, I quote the words of Bresson: "My Leica is literally an extension of my eye "says Cartier-Bresson," the way in which I hold in my hand, narrow forehead, his mark when the eyes move from side to side, it gives me the impression of being a referee in a match I held before my eyes, which I'll take the atmosphere to the hundredth of a second."
