Henri Cartier-Bresson

Looking at those two photos, of my self portrait, together, I wonder if that one was really the one I made the dots with. I managed somehow to digitally break the original, so I’ll never know. I tried a couple more, of Henri Cartier-Bresson drawn from an article in Newsweek. They had Helmut Newton photograph him to contrast their different styles. Drawing from a photograph is odd, the lighting is often either too soft (in the case of glamor magazines) or too contrasting (in the case of art photography) to be appropriate to draw. In the end I have two decent drawings of older men… but they don’t look particularly like Cartier-Bresson or the lovely photo by Newton. I’ll share anyway.
