Henri Cartier Bresson: Ballerina & Genius of Photography
The best show on television that’s not available in the United States stepped it up (literally) in Episode 3, touching on Henri Cartier Bresson and the genesis of the art of street photography. Best was the vintage footage of HCB photographing a couple on the street, while demonstrating this little leg kick, timed to the click of his shutter.
Fantastic. Too great to not make an animated gif.
