The Decisive Moment


The Decisive Moment is a brilliant 20 minute video featuring the legendary Henri Cartier-Bresson talking about photography and several of his images. I love the notion of the photograph as the immediate sketch that cannot be corrected. Life is once... forever.

'The decisive moment, it is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as the precise organization of forms which gives that event its proper expression.'

– Henri Cartier-Bresson
