Travails with my camera

Henri Cartier-Bresson at Somerset House.

Henri Cartier-Bresson shot in black and white. This exhibition has some of his work but is mainly a collection of images of photographers who attempt to catch the “Decisive Moment” in colour.

My favourite image was by Harry Gruyaert (of Magnum) and is a family sitting on the Nile at Assouan watching the Fellucas.

Is it as good as Cartier-Bresson? No. But it’s a magnificent photo.

Other names from the Exhibition include Saul Leiter, Carolyn Drake, Robert Walker, Trent Parke and Alex Webb. Look them up.
