Henri Cartier-Bresson

August 22, 1908 – August 3, 2004

Henri Cartier-Bresson was a French photographer considered the master of candid photography, and an early user of 35 mm film. He helped develop Street Photography, and approvingly cited a notion of the inevitability of a decisive moment, a term adopted as the title for his first major book. His work has influenced many photographers.
