Fridays are for readers: Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Modern Century.

The Modern Century… through the glass of Henri Cartier-Bresson, one of my Top 2 favourite photographers, and the vision of Peter Galassi.

The portrait of a modern society.

The portrait of a modern culture (writers and artists… my favourite part of the book, can’t help it)

Portraying a new world.

“Of all the means of expression, photography is the only one that fixes forever the precise and transitory instant. We photographers deal in things that are continually vanishing, and when they have vanished, there is no contrivance on earth that can make them come back again. We cannot develop a print from memory…” (Cartier-Bresson)

About Emma Espejo

Graduated from English Philology in the University of Barcelona, I wanted to study a phd on Literature but ended dedicating my life to Photography. Full time teacher of English, and full time photographer (a passion can't be neglected). Working on my photography and making other people happy with my photographs makes me happy, as well as a good conversation, reading a good book and watching a good tv series. I'm a reader, dreamer, lover, photographer, writer, thinker... a little bit of everything.
