I recently saw a philosophy program on TV. MDR may know it since he lives in Austria. It was on ARTE. They came to picture about the puddle jumper, and bla, bla, what they saw in that picture.
However whenever I look at Bressons pictures I am always amazed at how good they are. At least I am always amazed, and sure I start seeing things which possible I want to see.
As I see it there are so many photographers who find him exceptionally good. Because they find him good and they are in the know and not because of bla, blas.
It is always difficult to say since photography is always involved with emotion and we all do see differently. My favourite colour is orange and yours may be blue.
