“Paris işçileri, egemen sınıfların başarısızlıkları ve ihanetleri arasında anladılar ki, onlar için, halka ait işlerin idaresini kendi ellerine alarak durumu kurtarma saati gelmiştir… Anladılar ki, hükümet gücünü ele geçirerek kendilerini kendi kaderlerinin efendisi kılmak için, bu onların kaçınılmaz görevleri ve mutlak haklarıdır.”

18 Mart 1871 tarihli, Paris Ulusal Muhafız Merkez Komitesi bildirisinden alıntı

Our beloved Langston Hughes was born 113 years ago today in Joplin, Missouri. I am going to inundate you with photos and links to his poetry today, so I hope you’re ready. This photo was taken in New York City in 1947 by his friend, the legendary French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson. The men were once roommates in the early 1930s in Mexico along with the Mexican poet Andres Henestrosa. According to Arnold Rampersad’s biography on Mr. Hughes, he called their place “a vivienda, or apartment” but Mr. Cartier-Bresson insisted that “It was no apartment. It was a shack. We lived in a very humble place near the Lagunilla market and the little bars where the mariachi bands played. It was very cheap because we didn’t have any money. We pooled what we had and worked a little and entertained our girl friends there and enjoyed life a great deal.” Photo: Magnum Photos


A beautiful bright crisp morning with a little frost. Happy hump day fellow tumblr’s.

Just thought I’d show how one image can become several. Just because you’ve pushed that button doesn’t mean that has to be the final photograph.

This works well in a quick grab shot situation where you don’t have the time for composition.

Henri Cartier-Bresson, the famous French humanist photographer was a master at “capturing the decisive moment” in what we today call Reportage.
Just because we may not have the correct composition does not mean that the image is no good.

We throw away images every day in this digital era, but we use to keep hold of our negatives. Don’t throw out that image, it just may well contain a hidden gem.

I would like to extend Easter greetings to everyone celebrating today with this beautiful photograph of two women in Harlem on Easter Sunday 1947 by the legendary French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004). My favorite fun fact about Mr. Cartier-Bresson is that he and Langston Hughes were roommates as young struggling artists in Mexico in the 1930s. Photo: Henri Cartier-Bresson/Magnum Photos.
