Story truth from photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson

October 16, 2011

I’m in Brisbane for the Emerging Writers Festival, which I’ll blog about in greater detail during the week when I get back. In the meantime, I have the morning to myself so I came to see an exhibition of Henri Cartier-Bresson’s photography at the Art Gallery.

I’m glad I did. It’s an amazing collection of photographs evoking incredible nostalgia and place. Cartier-Bresson is a master storyteller with his imagery. Very powerful stuff. While soaking up the exhibition I saw this and had to share. Tis a great truth:

    Thought provoking quote, Alan. In fact, I’m sure I’ll still be thinking about that tomorrow and maybe next week. Looking forward to the update about EWF. Thanks (in advance) for sharing that info.
