"Henri Cartier-Bresson at the MOMA . . . "
A beautiful weekend here in San Francisco - and a delightful Sunday afternoon spent at the MOMA exploring the exhibition of the photographs of Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908 - 2004). An extensive exhibit of over 250
"Visitors who do not yet know Cartier-Bresson's work - or do not realize how often they have seen it - will find an education here, not only in photo history but also in the timing and the judgment of framing, position and occasion that make unforgettable pictures possible.

"The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant
