A Fascinating Distraction

I have a good friend in Dallas, Texas who works at Fossil where my son, David, is also employed. She is a supervisor in the photography department. She’s very interested in photojournalism and sent me these websites. They are fascinating and I thought some of you who are interested in photography might enjoy them. At least, I know I did. They’re truly interesting and beautiful regardless.

Henri Cartier-Bresson, is touted as the father of modern photojournalism. Paula has just discovered his work. These shots are terrific, but I would never have recognized Truman Capote!

The documentary about Cartier-Bresson is called, “The Impassioned Eye” and is excellent! He led a fascinating life and had such an analytical/mathematical perspective on shooting photography.

I found them to be an interesting and refreshing break from politics – at least for a bit, and thought I’d share them with you.
