Henri Cartier-Bresson “Pen, Brush and Camera”

This is a terrific documentary on the life and work of Henri Cartier-Bresson, arguably one of the greatest photographers of the 20th century (to which he humbly says: “bullshit!”).

It’s close to an hour long so make the time for it and I can say without a doubt that it’s well worth seeing.

Cartier-Bresson had a background in fine arts which informed his work but he was also a great humanist which also informed his work. He was a founder of Magnum one of the top photo agencies in the world.

He remains one of my favorite photographers and personalities: a humble man who has influenced generations of photographers and people in all branches of the arts.
