“The decisive moment is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms that give that event its proper expression." – Cartier-Bresson

“I am an anarchist. Anarchism is an ethic. It’s a way of behaving…. Electing and loving, finally…. Absolutely. Mentally, spiritually, and eventually physically.” – Cartier-Bresson.
