French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson is considered to be the father of modern photojournalism, an early adopter of 35 mm format, and the master of candid photography. He helped develop the "street photography" or "real life reportage" style that has influenced generations of photographers that followed.
Cartier-Bresson was a "sunday child". Born in a rich family of textile manufacturers, he was able to study at a private art school and the Lhote Academy, the Parisian studio of the Cubist painter and sculptor André Lhote. Later he went to the University of Cambridge, studying English, art and literature, which made him bilangual. After serving the army, he went to Ivory Coast, in search of adventure. He contracted blackwater fever, which nearly killed him and returned in 1931 to Marseille to recuperate. Inspired by a photo made by Martin Munkacsi, he stopped painting and took up photography seriously. He acquired the Leica camera with 50 mm lens in Marseilles that would accompany him for many years.
His photographs were exhibited for the first time in 1932 at Julien Levy Gallery in New York. After a period working as a photojournalist, in 1947 Cartier-Bresson started, together with David Seymour, George Rodger and Robert Capa, who he met in the mid-30's, photo agency Magnum.
Henri Cartier-Bresson is known for the term "the decisive moment". Photography is not like painting," Cartier-Bresson told the Washington Post in 1957. "There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative," he said. "Oop! The Moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever."
In the early 1970s, Cartier-Bresson returned to drawing and painting. By 1975 he no longer took pictures.
