Brooklyn, New York (by Henri Cartier-Bresson, 1947)

Henri Cartier-Bresson - Brooklyn - New York - 1947

Henri Cartier-Bresson dijo una vez: “¿La fotografía en color? Es algo indigesto, la negación de todos los valores tridimensionales de la fotografía.” Este rechazo del color se basó en esnobismo (el color era el medio del comercio y la publicidad) y el sentido común – durante la mayor parte de su vida, la fotografía en color estaba todavía en pañales, un medio rudimentario.

Henri Cartier-Bresson once said: “Photography in colour? It is something indigestible, the negation of all photography’s three-dimensional values.” This rejection of colour was based on snobbery (colour was the medium of commerce and advertising) and common sense – during most of his lifetime, colour photography was still a fledgling, rudimentary medium.
