Henri Cartier-Bresson 1908-2004

One of the greats of 20th century photography has passed away, and the BBC online has some very good links in the righthand sidebar. I'm afraid to say that upon reading of his passing I was surprised to find out that he was still alive.

Bresson pioneered what today would be termed street photography and is said to have coined the phrase decisive moment. He was among the first photographers to be called a photojournalist.

Read:Cartier-Bresson dies at 95.
