11 Jan Henri Cartier-Bresson “Pen, Brush and Camera” (1998)

Full 50-minute documentary from 1998 about the life and work of Henri Cartier-Bresson, the legendary photographer who’s considered to be the father of photojournalism.

The film was directed by Patricia Wheatley, who interviewed the 90-year-old Cartier-Bresson to learn more about his lifetime of creating art. The photographer actually started off in the world of painting, having enrolled in a private art school in 1927 at the age of 20. He studied under French painter André Lhote, who taught Cartier-Bresson the art of “photography without a camera.”
