On Henri Cartier-Bresson and the Less Decisive Moment - Gaby Wood / Sean O'Hagan (Wed 24 Dec 2014)

Street Portrait - Paris (Thu 18 Sep 2014)

Gaby Wood (*) writes on Henri Cartier-Bresson (*) and the Decisive Moment (*):
The reason his photographs often feel numbly impersonal now is not just that they are familiar. It’s that they’re so coolly composed, so infernally correct that there’s nothing raw about them, and you find yourself thinking: would it not be more interesting if his moments were a little less decisive?
via Cartier-Bresson's classic is back – but his Decisive Moment has passed (*) by Sean O'Hagan (*).
