Henri Cartier-Bresson’s birthday

Bastille Day Ball, Place de la Bastille square, Paris, France, 1952. Bresson taught many of us how to see everyday scenes as not so ordinary. It all had to do with his ability not to see the “subject” but the subjects. There’s been no one quite like him. He could do his art in all situations, wherever he found himself. Truly an extraordinary artist.
thank you for the information and story of Thomas Merton – I did not know till recently of his interest in photography. Now my interest in Merton is piqued as I blend photography with zen and vipassana practices . Thank you
