Henri Cartier-Bresson 1908-2004

Henri was a Humanist Photographer and was considered a master of candid.

Henri is known for capturing photos of the war because he spent 2 years in serving in France and came back to capture the things he went through.

Henri didn't necessarily work for anyone, he worked alone and helped establish photojournalism as an art form.

Henri used a 50mm lens on his 35mm camera because he thought that the lens made the photo "breathe"

Henri was influenced as a young boy by his father and uncle who worked in the arts

I selected this photographer because his work caught my eye, every picture he took I almost felt like I could feel exactly what the subject was feeling.
