Henri Cartier-Bresson — on YouTube

In French, but with English subtitles, there's an interview with HCB in 5 parts on YouTube.


He's very candid about how he worked and how he sees the role of the photographer. The video is called "L'amour tout court" ("Just Plain Love" 2001).

I was encouraged (maybe "reassured" is a better word) by HCB's acknowledgement of the role of luck. I suppose, however, that in photography, as in everything else, luck favours the prepared.
