One of the greatest photographers/artists of our time, and a true legend, has passed away at age 95: Henri Cartier-Bresson:<br><br><br><br><blockquote>Regarded as one of the greatest photographers of his time, Henri Cartier-Bresson was a shy Frenchman who elevated "snap shooting" to the level of a refined and disciplined art. His sharp-shooter’s ability to catch "the decisive moment," his precise eye for design, his self-effacing methods of work, and his literate comments about the theory and practice of photography made him a legendary figure among contemporary photojournalists.<br><br>His work and his approach have exercised a profound and far-reaching influence. His pictures and picture essays have been published in most of the world’s major magazines during three decades, and Cartier-Bresson prints have hung in the leading art museums of the United States and Europe (his monumental ‘The Decisive Moment’ show being the first photographic exhibit ever to be displayed in the halls of the Louvre). In the practical world of picture marketing, Cartier-Bresson left his imprint as well: he was one of the founders and a former president of Magnum, a cooperative picture agency of New York and Paris.</blockquote><br><br>More of his biography found here.<br><br>Armed with his Leica camera... <br><br><br><br>...Bresson created images that have moved me beyond words. <br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>****************<br><br>[color:red]VOTE for President George W.
