Cartier-Bresson: A master's black-and-white world
Here is a photo by famous photographer Henri Cartier Bresson, he is a documentary style photographer that shoots only in black and white. I really like this photo and have chosen it as research because it shows not only architecture with the nice lines and shapes in the stairs, it also shows a bike which adds something to the photo and gives a sense of something going on.
