Henri Cartier-Bresson was a French humanist photographer. He is referred to as the master of candid photography. He was an early user of 35 mm film, where most others used large or medium format cameras.
He was a pioneer in street photography and captured powerful moments.
His view on photography produced a book, describing the decisive moment. The decisive moment is when the “visual and psychological elements of people in a real-life scene spontaneously and briefly come together in perfect resonance.”
