Henri Cartier-Bresson @ SFMOMA

While in San Francisco, I went to the Museum of Modern Art. Overall it was a disappointment; they had an entire floor dedicated to banal ‘voyeuristic’ photography.

One of their special exhibits was a photography retrospective on Henri Cartier-Bresson, who is a photographer I admire. He coined the ‘decisive moment’ where his subjects were not arranged ahead of time, which is not dissimilar from much of my photography. However, as I will admit in my own work, straight capturing of scenes can tend to get a little boring if it is overdone.

With that noted, there were several works which I found terrific. I snapped these few before the guards chastised me for doing so, after which I had to put the camera phone down.
