Biography: Henri Cartier-Bresson


Henri Cartier-Bresson (born August 22, 1908 in Chanteloup-en-Brie, Seine-et-Marne, France – August 3, 2004) was a French photographer.

He started with photography taking pictures with Box Brownie, and later with 3×4 inch view camera. Later he purchased 35mm Leica and for the rest of his career his favorite lens was 50mm and if he needed it, a longer 90mm lens . His images revealed the early raw possibilities of street photography and photojournalism in general.

In 1947 together with Robert Capa, George Rodger, David Seymour, and William Vandivert he founded famous agency – Magnum Photos. In 1952 he published his first book ‘The Decisive Moment’ which is the one of the most inspiring for new generation of photographers.
