My Favourtie Photographer

Henri Cartier-Bresson

My all time favourite photographer!

Henri Cartier-Bresson(1908 – 2004), born in France, a very famous and well-know photographer. He is also known as the father of photojournalism, his work captivates the essence of freedom, elegance and naturalness. Often seen with a Leica in his hand, he captures entrancing and fascinating photos that continue to attract people’s attention.

You might be surprise! Henri Cartier-Bresson began as a painter! He studied painting at a private art school and the Lhote Academy under the influence of his uncle. His passion and love for photography started when he saw a photo by a Hungarian photojournalist, Martin Munkacsi. The photo was caught at lake Tanganyika in near-silhouette showing three naked young African boys running into the surf.

To him photography is like instant drawing, the ability to capture eternity in an instant. Henri Cartier-Bresson has influenced many generations of photographer.

Here are some of his famous works:
