Notes: nastrój schwytany

H. Cartier-Bresson

Henri Cartier-Bresson acknowledges Kertesz as his teacher, and the work of the two men bears a similarity in its concern with every phase of human activity – whether play or work, love or war. But Cartier-Bresson imbues his pictures with a unique sense of time. They record what he calls the decisive moment, the instant when a mood is best expressed. (…) What they freeze is attitude, the glance of the eye, the tilt of a head, the twist of a torso – of one person or several in one picture. His genius is to sense when a combination of expressions and postures communicates his message, and in that instants to record the reality refined and concentrated, of the pleasure and pains of ordinary experience.
