Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004) was a French photographer who is considered to be one of the most influential photographers of all time. A master of “candid photography,” he helped develop the street photography style that influenced generations of photographers and even enthusiasts. He also co-founded Magnum Photos together with Robert Capa, David Seymour, William Vandivert and George Rodger.

This posthumous show will feature 90 black and white prints not just by Cartier-Bresson, but also by fellow photographer Paul Strand. The collection will also include unpublished works of Cartier Bresson and showcase Strand’s collections from Spain, Mexico and the United States. The show will be housed on La Maison des artistes – the current headquarters of the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation or Fondation HCB.

He also has a current ongoing exhibition at Kunst Haus Wien titled The Compass in the Eye: America-India-Soviet Union which is open until February 26th, 2012. Henri Cartier-Bresson/Paul Strand, Mexico 1932-1934 will be open from January 11th – April 22nd 2012. For more information, you may visit henricartierbresson.org.

    A Salute to the Masters: Ducks (A Tribute to Henri Cartier-Bresson)

    This article is dedicated to arguably one of the most famous street photographers in the world, Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004). On this occasion, I felt obliged to write a tribute to this great artist whom I consider the "Mozart of Photography." His photos are inimitable, and to try to reproduce his innate sense of composition, harmony, and choice of the right moment is but an illusion. So I chose an unusual way to pay tribute, the only way possible for me. Take a look!

    Testing a Yashica TLR Camera After 55 Years in Storage

    Though I am not a professional, photography is in my genes. My father was a photographer and technician in the Air Force and accumulated a number of cameras during his life. This is a story about one of those cameras, a Yashica 635 TLR. I brought the camera—after being in storage for about 55 years—back to life with a roll of Portra 160 during the golden hour at Bellevue Botanical Gardens in Washington.

    A Salute to the Masters: Paestum (A Tribute to Serge Moulinier)

    This article is dedicated to Serge Moulinier, a largely unknown French photographer who won one of the most important prizes in France with a book on Greek architecture. Strangely, little information can be found on the Internet about this great photographer whose work had also been published in an important essay written by the famous John Szarkowski, former Director of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

    Geoffrey Berliner On Photographic Processes, Old and New

    Geoffrey Berliner is the Executive Director of the Penumbra Foundation and the Center for Alternative Photography in New York. As the head of an organization whose goals are 'to be a comprehensive resource for photographers at any level' and 'to continue to publicize the impact photography has had and continues to have on culture, history and the arts,' his exposure to photographic materials -from 19th century gems to modern equipment- is so extensive, one cannot even begin to fathom just how much knowledge and experience this man has acquired. His collection of over 2000 vintage Petzval lenses is unparalleled, and the object of envy of both traditional and contemporary photographers. Although such lenses are reputed to require a certain level of skill to be used, Berliner seems to manage them with so much ease, producing splendid results.
