Henri Cartier Bresson pictures

For this part of the post I picked some of Bressons’s silly and funny pictures. Besides being silly and funny they also have a more serious tone because of the black and white effect which is something that caught my eye. I like his black and white style which I use in most of my pictures. I also liked his pictures can vary from photojournalism to landscapes, or silly to serious, and how some could make you laugh, get sad or just make you think about what’s happening and who’s in the picture, for example,  spent some time thinking about what could be happening in the picture with the guy in his underwear in public and staring at a wall, he could be wondering where his clothes are at, it really makes want to know the context and that’s what I think is the most interesting aspect of his pictures.

I liked Siskind style because I’m really into black and white photography. Siskind also used vignette in some of his pictures which is a feature that I use in most of my pictures. I also liked how some of his pictures sometimes had a funny subject but the black and white effect made it more serious.

Those pictures really caught my attention because the shapes look like someone’s shadow. It is interesting because you can’t quite distinguish what the are. It has a nice composition and a touch of sadness in it.

100 Most Influential Pictures

Abrahan Lincoln was a great man and would’ve accomplished great things if he wasn’t assassinated.

I chose this picture because Abrahan Lincoln is really inspiring in my opinion, given that he fought a severe depression for most of his life and still never gave up and kept trying to make a change.

I chose tis picture because it really shows the happiness and fun the two characters are giving off, and it makes me happy just by looking at this picture, that’s why I think it’s one of the best.

I chose this picture because what caught my eye was the lack of context, you might just keep trying to find it, but the fact that the picture is so weird and intriguing makes it os interesting that you just don’t feel like finding the context anymore and in my opinion that’s why this picture is good.
