Henri Cartier-Bresson dies at 95

For anyone who tries to make beautiful or arresting images for a living, we have lost one the greatest artists of the modern era. His images are still as fresh today as when they were exposed to film; his unique gift for combining light, composition and movement into a single "decisive
moment" inspired many to follow his and Andre Kertesz' bold journey into the then new medium of 35mm stills photography. For the first time an artist was able to take a small, light, discrete camera (the early Leica) and capture the world with an immediacy previously impossible. This great man's legacy still casts a huge shadow even in this digital era. A true giant of art.

The BBC website has this obituary.

Anyone who doesn't know who Henri Cartier-Bresson is should go and look up his photographs on the net immediately!

Many have tried to emulate Cartier-Bresson's photography style in modern day surroundings, but it's not really the same thing as those 1950's "decisive moments" that Cartier-Bresson captured.
