Say Hello to Henri Cartier-Bresson

Photography is an immediate reaction, drawing is a meditation. - Henri Cartier-Bresson

Hello readers, this picture above was captured by Cartier-Bresson named Behind the Gare St. Lazare.  Cartier-Bresson or his full name is Henri Cartier-Bresson was a French photographer considered to be the father of modern journalism and master to a candid photography. He helped develop the "street photography" or "real life reportage" style that has influenced generations of photographers who followed.

I'm not going to tell you everything about Henri Cartier-Bresson, google  it yourself. Laugh. But thanks to this man the photo journalism of today had been much more improved with stunning photos that can't be deceived by human eyes, that is what I called honest. Street is where you can see the reality of this world. Combining street with candid will give you a reality picture on the street. 
Here are some inspirational and great pictures taken in Malaysia.

STREET PHOTOGRAPHY is just like many other things in life. EASY to do but DIFFICULT to do well. - Che' Ahmad Azhar
