Final project

For my final art project I chose to explore outside the realm of drawing and painting.. photography ! 🙂
I googled some famous photographers and found myself drawn to Henri Cartier Bresson’s work. Bresson was a french photographer who is considered to be the father of modern photojournalism and has helped to develop what is now known as street photography or real life reportage. Overall he has been a great influence in the artistic world. His photographs depict daily living which is something I was interested in replicating. *I would like to note that Bresson never used the flash because he thought it was impolite. All of my Bresson replications are without flash and in black and white in order to be consistent with his work.
