Inspire me monday . Henri Cartier-Bresson: Pen, Brush and Camera

Front image of the blog feature Inspire Me Monday

Hello creative folks,

I have been in complete reclusion since last week trying to learn how to develop film at home. If we’ve already met on Instagram you’ve probably seen some images of the process and I’ll make a post next week about it where I will also talk about why I needed to be 100% concentrated on this ( if you’re wondering if it has anything to do with the fact that I am borderline obsessive, you are probably right ! )

In the meantime I wanted to share with you guys a documentary I watched about one of the most unavoidable photography masters, Henri Cartier-Bresson.

It’s from 1998 so he was still alive but already on the phase where he had practically stopped photographing and returned to painting and drawing.

And I absolutely love the opening line:

” ( the camera ) it’s an extension of the eye, photography is very much to me a physical pleasure, like hunting except but we don’t kill.”

 


 

I hope you enjoy it and that you have an inspired week.
