This one goes back to New Year’s Day when I went to shoot the polar dippers at Sunnyside. Man was it cold that day. Then again, it’s been miserably cold ever since, really. I think this was the only semi-creative shot I’ve taken all year.
So I finally received my copy of The Decisive Moment, by Henri Cartier-Bresson. What a beautiful book, although the type of paper they used for it strikes me as an odd choice. The photos lack the contrast and blacks I was expecting. Very muted and soft. The paper they used is a non-glossy thick sort of product I’ve never seen in a book before. But it’s still a lovely book of photographs taken by the best street photographer of the last century.
