Henri Cartier Bresson: Just Plain Love


I was thrilled when I stumbled upon this documentary on one of my favorite photographers.  Henri Cartier-Bresson was a French humanist photographer considered by many to be the father of photojournalism.  He embraced the 35m format early in his career, and came to adore his lightweight Leica -- a favorite of many subsequent street photographers.  Bresson became a master of candid photography, and later went on to make films with the legendary Jean Renoir.

Just Plain Love was made in 2002, and features Bresson at 92.  It's a fascinating look into the mind of a legendary artist.

Running time: 1 hour, 10 min.

One Decisive Moment is my favorite collection of Bresson photographs.  Originally published in 1952, this book has influenced generations of photographers.  This edition is the first and only reprint since the original edition.  (You've got to love that cover design by Matisse!)
