5: Henri Cartier-Bresson is one of the Old Masters in the history of photography. This suite of sketches, paintings and collages is an affectionate look at various aspects of his photographic practice, as well as other ambiances that surround his legend and status. These include... ... the type of camera, lens and viewfinder in use. ... "street photography" and photojournalism. ... the photographer and his relation to the object in the frame. ... the implications of Time. ... Cartier-Bresson's own pre photography inspirations, and the history of painting. ... the build up to the making of a "work of art". ... how information attaches itself to images. ... the mis-interpretation of images. ... the merging of well known images in the memory. ... the shift, from image to Art History. ... the shift, from Art to commerce. The "relationship" referred to is, of course, in one direction only. But this suite has elements of a child (myself) trying to come to terms with their father (Cartier-Bresson), and the needing to move on in spite of the influence and ties. This collection has been gathered from sketches, paintings and collages made over the period 1986-1992. Lucien Rizos 2012
