The art of communicating news by photographs, especially in magazines. The photos I took of strangers are of people going on with there daily lives just with a global pandemic.

Henri Cartier Bresson

Henri Cartier Bresson seems to be known for his perfect timing when capturing images. I chose these images because of the perfect timing in each one of these and that to me is considered a great picture. he first picture is my favorites because the woman is casually walking up the stairs where the birds are and with another step the birds star flying away. The second picture is showing kids playing around while there it shows like if something has happened  and there is a kid in crutches trying to get past it. The third picture is just such perfect timing because I know for fact that biker must have been going fast and the fact that Bresson captured that image is very surprising but also very cool because he took the time to take that and capture that moment. It’s fascinating to me that this man has captured so many moments that will be remembered and shared. Photography is for capturing images that people will remember and pass down. Photojournalism is mostly for people who want to go around the world and take pictures. Also to capture stories of other people and they’re daily lives. When photojournalists such as Henri, capture images they are not just taking pictures they are telling stories with those pictures.


My photo’s


The abstract art for which Siskind became best known developed from his attempt to express his own states of mind in photography, rather than simply to record subject matter. In the early 194os he began photographing patterns and textures of such mundane subjects such as coiled ropes, footprints in sand, and seaweed. Much like the members of Group f.64, Siskind achieved surprising, dramatic results by shooting his subjects at close range.
