Cartier-bresson-logo-2Last week, we shared a classic (and rare) TV interview with photography legend Henri Cartier-Bresson from the Charlie Rose Show on PBS. While that interview had some choice moments, we were somewhat put-off by Rose's interview techniques.

There's actually a much better film (embedded below) about Cartier-Bresson on YouTube which, thanks to its subtitles, makes it much easier to understand.

Not only does it allow Cartier-Bresson to speak in his own words and reflect on his life as a photographer, but it shows what his work has meant to other photographers, artists and musicians.
"L'Amour Tout Court" (Just Plain Love) by director Raphael O'Bryne is both a documentary about Cartier-Bresson and a film about being a photographer. Between HCB's images and his stories about how they were made, he reveals an approach to photography that is within the reach of most of us.
Check it out below and tell us what you think in the comments.
