henri cartier-bresson

been browsing through the henri cartier-bresson interactive exhibition at moma, certainly one of the best photojournalists ever to have lived. he’s famous for his photos from his native france, but i really enjoyed the series taken in the USA between 1930-60ish. the first photo is from the McCann-Erickson advertising agency on Madison Avenue, New York in 1959. it looks exactly like the sterling cooper office! you knew i was going to mention mad men, huh? i’m so predictable.

    my hubby and I were down in New York for a wedding recently, and saw the exhibit. It was great… some of this war pics were very moving (the little boy walking alone in a man’s army coat), and his shots of India were amazing. Highly recommend it.
