    Thank you, Ann!

    I *loved* every second of this interview ... whether or not Rose did a "good" job. Rose's technique matters little: Henri Cariter-Bresson's responses, and the projection of his "inner being" ("anarchist... finally reducing "anarchism" to "love") was marvelous.

    Especially, when Rose asked him, "Why don't you accept the fact that you are a great (the greatest?) photographer?" - and Cartier-Bresson answered him, "Because it is not true. I have a camera, and I use it."

    One really significant quote from HCB: "Everything worth knowing cannot be taught."

    Rose: "What makes a great photograph?"
    HCB: "Geometry, and everything in the right place ... and ...."
    Rose: "You don't know?"
    HCB: "No, I don't know,"
    Rose: "And it can't be taught?"
    HCB: "No. It can't be taught"
    Carpe erratum!!

    The DVD "Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Impassioned Eye" has a great deal more of the impish HCB - I found it much more enjoyable than the Charlie Rose interview.
