Henri Cartier-Bresson

 

 

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.
