Henri Cartier-Bresson dies

Henri Cartier-Bresson died on Tuesday. All PJs have studied his work. He founded Magnum photo agency. He coined the term "the decisive moment" as it applies to PJ. He became a painter for the last 25 of his 95 years, but he will always be considered the "father of photojournalism" to many.

Magnum has posted a retrospective of his work here.

Enough for now,

I saw the slide show on Magnum. Quite interesting.
