The conceptual reflection about the decisive moment of Henri Cartier-Bresson
Henri Cartier-Bresson regarded his decisive moment concept as 'the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as the precise organisation of forms which gives that event its proper expression'. Cartier-Bresson further explained that the decisive moment is universal, that 'there is nothing in this world that does not have a decisive moment'. Cartier-Bresson clearly saw photography containing a capability to document everyday life, where even mundane scenes can be defined through their decisive moments. In my opinion the decisive moment is the elusive substance. This project researches what happens before and after this existential decision of the Universe.
