And so, October concludes my homage to the great Henri Cartier Bresson.
I felt compelled to honour his memory and incredibly evocative quotes.
It was a nostalgic trip down travel photography lane, reliving my sojourns through: China, Africa, Greek Islands, New Zealand and parts of Australia.
This month I am practising my food photography.
In most instances I will have made the dish (as in now). In others, it’ll be from a great place a good foodie would go to.
Hope your capturing your visions,
“The intensive use of photographs by mass media lays ever fresh responsibilities upon the photographer. We have to acknowledge the existence of a chasm between the economic needs of our consumer society and the requirements of those who bear witness to this epoch. This affects us all, particularly the younger generations of photographers. We must take greater care than ever not to allow ourselves to be separated from the real world and from humanity.”
“This recognition, in real life, of a rhythm of surfaces, lines, and values is for me the essence of photography; composition should be a constant of preoccupation, being a simultaneous coalition – an organic coordination of visual elements.” –
