Cartier-Bresson in Moscow

There’s an interesting Radio 4 radio programme available on-line at the moment, called “Cartier-Bresson in Moscow.” You can find it here –

I’m not convinced that radio is really the best medium for consideration of a visual art, but it might help to look at some of the photographs that the programme refers to, here –

The programme includes a short recording of HCB speaking including the phrase “use as little equipment as possible” … great advice but not a piece of guidance popular with the gear-obsessed photographic press.

My thanks are due to Andrea Ingram who highlighted the existence of this programme, on the site. Andrea blogs at Boxes and Bellows.
