Description:
One of photographers true greats, Henri Cartier-Bresson, nailed photography perfectly when he coined the phrase the decisive moment. So perfectly, in fact, that it has foiled all attempts to escape the single, crucial idea of what photography, and photography alone, can do. It has spawned the inevitable contrary terms, such as Geoff Dyers ongoing moment and Gary Window grands indecisive moment, but these simply continue to reinforce the idea that there are indeed perfect instants in the world we see in front of us. The book, following closely on from Capturing Light, will deal with the unique power of photography to capture slices of times and life. What it is not is a book about shutter speed. It is about gesture, expression, things just touching and other about to happena kiss, a ball in the net, a whale breaching, a pole vaulter suspended above the bar, an expression of delight, a glass about to shatter in pieces on the floor. Moment in all its forms is the true core of photography, and this book will explain how to anticipate it, recognize it, choose it, and so capture it.
