The Invention of Happiness - Jacques Henri Lartigue at Casa dei Tre Oci in Venice

La Baule, 1979Photograph by Jacques Henri Lartigue © Ministère de laCulture (France), MAP-AAJHL (Venice, Italy) Jacques Henri Lartigue was seven-years-old when his father, an amateur photographer, gave him his first camera.

Meet the quarantined street photographers documenting life in ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’

Since the 19th century, photographers like Henri Cartier-Bresson and Joel Meyerowitz have been tirelessly roaming around to photograph life on the streets.

Although the proliferation of camera tech has drastically changed the landscape of street photography in the digital age, the tradition is continued by thousands of enthusiasts photographers who are still pushing t...

Henri Cartier-Bresson: China breaking free of its past – in pictures

Brands Need Meaning To Revive, Expand Or Disrupt

Last month, we established that consumers do not care about (most) brands. Consumers are on a quest to find meaning and brands that succeed are the ones that help them fulfill this quest. Today, we will look at brands that rely on meaning to grow and differentiate. I also share some important guidelines on how to create meaningful brands and products. You will find many more case studies and tips in my book Brand Hacks: How to Grow your Brand by Fulfilling the Human Quest for Meaning. Leica L...

Annie Leibovitz on the shots that made her

She captured America’s most tumultuous moments and its biggest stars. The great photographer relives her Rolling Stone years – and the time she set fire to Patti SmithAnnie Leibovitz is standing by a photograph she took of Pont Neuf in Paris. It’s a swirling panoramic shot of the famous bridge, taken when she was a student and would roam the city’s streets camera in hand.

15 Amazing Photographs That Successfully Tell a Story

Every photograph we see tells us a story in some way. Some photographs do it exceptionally well, though. As the popular adage goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. A really strong image can captivate a viewer's attention and can truly convey a message. Think of the iconic images like The Decisive Moment by Henri Cartier-Bresson, or Dorothea Lange’s Depression-era work, or Churchill’s historic portrait photo by Yousuf Karsh. This post is a collection of some images that successfully tell a s...

3 Core Composition Skills That Every Photographer Needs To Develop

We have talked a lot about composition in the past, and there is a reason why. This is because we truly believe that composition is where the soul of any photograph resides. Learning how to expose with a camera is just as meritorious as learning how to drive or even to write. Anyone can take photographs, but not all photographs are meaningful. Composition is a huge asset in photography, and there has been a lot said about rules and even recipes about composition. But there is something that ...

The Biggest Flaw I See in Pictures*

In one way it's curious that Henri Cartier-Bresson is known for "the decisive moment," and for things like Joel Meyerowitz's description of him darting and pirouetting through crowds like a hummingbird, wielding his Leica like a hibachi chef's knife, because it downplays the amount of time he must have spent sitting around waiting. Because as I understand it, one of his picturetaking strategies was to find a nice setting, and then wait around until something happened in it. Who knows how long he...

What I Learned From Magnum’s The Art Of Street Photography

As an academic myself, I always enjoy learning from reliable sources and what I consider to be authorities in a field. I've given my life to photography, my greatest passion and love, so basically I always connect stuff with photography. Learning about photography is one of the most pleasant things for me, and after 10 years of walking with my camera, there is a lot still left for me to know. Among many other institutions, collectives and photographers, Magnum Photos has been a huge source...

Photographer's secret weapon: how to make your pics standout

When you see the work of great photographers, you possibly wonder how do they manage to do it. What magic is enabling them to create these masterpieces? You might think that success lies in having the right gear, professional models, enough money to travel around the world, and of course talent. But the truth is that behind every great photographer is a huge amount of passion, hundreds of hours of practice, and some simple secrets. So obviously, it's not about expensive gear (some photographer...

Leica releases the CL Street Kit for all of your decisive moments

Leica’s pricey – but sexy – CL camera is the closest thing you can get to an original portable luxury shooter without spending more than a used Toyota Corolla.

Now, in time for Noel, Leica is offering a Street Kit that includes the CL along with a Leica Summicron-TL 23 mm f/2 lens. This flat pancake lens gives you a “tried and true 35 mm equivalent focal length for th...

Photo Books Question

Paul Braverman asks: "Why do highly desired photography books remain out of print? There is an obvious demand for Winogrand's Women Are Beautiful and Heath's Dialogue With Solitude. The price for a copy can reach four figures. Why not reissue them? Seems like the estate of those photographers would make some money, collectors would still be able to brag that they have a first edition, and I would be able to buy a new copy at a reasonable price. Everybody wins. What am I missing?" Mike replies: M...

Understanding The Decisive Moment

“Of all the means of expression, photography is the only one that fixes the precise moment. We play with things that disappear and that, once disappeared, it is impossible to revive. For us, what disappears, disappears forever: hence our anguish and also the essential originality of our trade. What comes out of that camera is no stranger to the economy of a world of waste, where tensions are increasingly intense and where the ecological consequences are already excessive.” Henri Cartier-Bresson ...

What is a Rangefinder Camera?

If you’ve spent any time reading about photography, you’ve probably come across reverential mentions of Leica cameras and other “rangefinders” used by a lot of great street photographers like Henri Cartier-Bresson in the mid-20th century. I know I was confused when I first heard about them since they aren’t really around anymore, so here’s what they are.

12 Links for Photojournalism Lovers

Photojournalism is one of the genres I respect the most in photography, but unfortunately, it has suffered the same fate as newspapers.  News agencies are relying more on content they can find on social media, and not so much on paying a freelance photojournalist to cover their stories. Nevertheless, photojournalism still is a strong genre and has produced, in my opinion, the vast majority of influential photographs in history. Today we want to share with you 11 links that will get you ...

"My mother always called me plain. She saw this as a flaw to be corrected. She wanted the whole world dressed in dazzling color—even me."

"I never quite complied. I have the fashion sense of Vladimir and Estragon and the panache of my New England nana. When left to my devices, I choose to be unobtrusive. I choose gray. It suits my diffidence and soothes my extroversion. It is the color, rather than the sound, of silence. It sits with monkish, folded hands and asks for nothing. It never shouts. It never pushes.... A color psychology article on Bustle tells me that I fear commitment. 'Grey is emotionless,' it says, 'boring, detached...

Don't Forget!

Wednesday is International Street Photography Day. At least, I think it is. Is that really a thing? I don't find very much about it on the Internet, unless the official title is something else. Anyway, it's Henri Cartier-Bresson's 110th birthday, and the way you celebrate (according to us) is to get out and make a picture. Any type of picture is okay (you make your own rules), but extra points if it's a street photograph and extra extra points if it shows a decisive moment! More on Wednesday. Th...
