SASCHA HACKEL talks about Henri Cartier-Bresson:

What is wonderful about this photograph is that, at first glance, one sees it as one image; looking at it more closely it becomes clear that there are three distinct layers in the photograph:

In the background, the graphic windows. In the middle ground, the caricature fat man in bowler hat and suit, knee delicately bent. In the foreground, the extremely cheeky faces of the young boys.

Each layer is different and yet all meld together so beautifully. What appears at first to be such a perfectly balanced study of shape and form gradually reveals its warmth and humanity.

Sascha Hackel, London, July 2003
