Beyond Cartier-Bresson: A History of a Master’s Early Work - Carole Naggar: “The primary (but hardly the sole) merit of this extraordinary Cartier-Bresson retrospective is that it sheds light on little-known aspects of his career. Too often Cartier-Bresson has been represented only as the artist of the “decisive moment,” as if his vision had emerged fully developed in one burst, and remained constant throughout his career. The reality, of course, is much more complex. http://lightbox.time.com

Weinberg, who recently celebrated his 95th birthday, has never had any formal training in photography. He figured it all out on his own. Ten years ago, he learned to use Photoshop.
