I picked up a copy of “An Inner Silence – The Portraits of Henri Cartier-Bresson” the other day. Looking at the photos in the book, I was struck by how the style of candid portraits has changed. HCB portraits are quiet and reflective. In the book, HCB is quoted as saying “Above all, I look for an inner silence. I seek to translate the personality and not an expression.” I’d contrast that with most of the current writing, which emphasizes gesture, expression and emotion (generally something other than the silent type of HCB). Just found that interesting, nothing more.
