... the Gandhian days in the iris of Henri Cartier-Bresson

Yesterday was the 3rd of August. In 2004, we lost on this day the father of modern photojournalism, Henri Cartier-Bresson. Here are the screen-shots of ten immortal snaps of the Gandhian days in India.


 










The diary of a dead moth pays a tribute to this great soul and remembers the stormy old days, the father of the nation. A deep courtesy goes herewith for the unforgettable documentary, "Just plain love" [2001, ARTE France Les films à Lou]. And for the first photograph I bow to Jane Bown.
