In 1947, with Robert Capa, George Rodger, David ‚Chim’ Seymour and William Vandivert, he founded Magnum Photos. After three years spent travelling in the East, in 1952 he returned to Europe, where he published his first book, Images à la Sauvette (published in English as The Decisive Moment).
FRANCE. Paris. Place de l’Europe. Gare Saint Lazare. 1932.
Behind Saint Lazare Train Station is one of the most famous street photos of all time. It exemplifies Henri Cartier Bresson’s approach to chasing the decisive moment. The urban myth is that he took the photo through a hole in the fence without sighting it. It’s also one of the only shots that he ever cropped.
Big surprise! Today I recived great message. My portfolio with 40 photos will be presented on Sunday at the Art Takes Miami: 1,001 Artists Project in Miami, USA!

Scope Art Miami, 1001 Artists Project

Women have always been at the heart of communities and it’s women who have their fingers on the pulse of daily life. Women do 70-80% of all agriculture & food production in the world. Women are responsible for well over half the world’s cash income and now play a central role as compassionate powerbrokers and decision makers. We should be continually reminded that ‘girl power’ is older than mere 21st century pop culture.
Relying on their hospitality and organisational savvy has frequently meant the difference between success and failure on many of my travels and photographic projects. This exhibition is a celebration of womanhood and marks 25 years of travelling to remote, rural and ethnic communities.
There are so many ways that the world around us can take on a whole new look with a little change in perspective. This is one of the things that photographers specialize in. Applying that perspective for us through their artistic captures, underwater photography is a prime example of this. When photographers take their cameras below the surface of the water, so many amazing things can happen. And so many amazing pictures can surface.
Below we have a collection that is sure to inspire, that is filled with stunning photographs captured underwater. From the wildlife that rules over the underwater kingdom, to the models and fashion submerged into the water’s depths to bring new life and context to their artistry, photographers produce some breathtaking pieces by simply looking beneath the surface.
