Yesterday, 22 August 2016, marked the 108th anniversary of famed French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson’s birth. Although many worship the man as the founder of street photographer (I am not one of them) and while others are less enamored, I must recognize the effect of his work in pushing for composition in street photographer. He was an artist more so than a photographer, a lesson that too many still have not learned.
