Henri Cartier-Bresson is a photographer known for his ability to capture images on the move. He is able to choose the decisive moment, both mundane and historic. In the present image, three women are casually posed, almost as if mid-conversation. There is an air of mystery around the women as they are presented with little context.

Henri Cartier-Bresson (French, 1908–2004) was one of the 20th century masters of documentary photography and a pioneer of the 35mm format. Trained as a fine artist, Cartier-Bresson studied painting and sculpture before turning to photography. His passion for photography was cemented in 1932, when he discovered the Leica camera, which he would stay faithful to throughout his career. In 1947, he co-founded Magnum Photos, and in 1952, he published his classic book 'Images à la Sauvette.' Throughout his life, Cartier-Bresson received an extraordinary number of prizes, awards and honorary doctorates.
