Cartier-Bresson ~ Jumping Man at Eiffel Tower

Cartier-Bresson ~ Jumping Man at Eiffel Tower

Thought I would share this documentary. I love Cartier-Bresson’s work. Who doesn’t? And I love his thoughts on seeing and shooting pictures. Whatever we do, it starts with the picture, doesn’t it? Of course, he made his people work in the lab for a week to get the print right: that’s apping!

Update: Tommy Armansyah wrote to inform me that the man in the picture was Elliott Erwitt (Paris, 1989).
