Cartier-Bresson in His Own Voice

When an exhibition of 214 framed photographs of Henri Cartier-Bresson came to the High Museum in Atlanta this past winter, I visited it three times.  So many prints, by one master, spread out over multiple rooms, was a bit overwhelming.  One visit was not enough. 

I just found a gem of a video about Cartier-Bresson on Vimeo. Actually, it's not about Cartier-Bresson.  It is Cartier-Bresson ... talking about a small sampling of his images in his own voice.  It was recorded in the 1970's. A number of these images weren't in the traveling exhibit that made it to Atlanta.
