What moved Cartier Bresson

HENRI CARTIER-BRESSON – Decisive Moment, The from bt465 on Vimeo.

In 1947 Henri Cartier Bresson founded Magnum Photos, an important cooperative photography agency with offices in London, Paris, Tokyo and New York.

A twitter friend pointed me to this video. Thank you @filosoof or Maurice Haak.

Update The video was dumped by Vimeo due to:

Sorry, “HENRI CARTIER-BRESSON – Decisive Moment, The” was deleted at 1:44:28 Wed Jun 15, 2011. Vimeo has removed or disabled access to the following material as a result of a third-party notification by Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson claiming that this material is infringing: HENRI CARTIER-BRESSON – Decisive Moment, The. We have no more information about it on our mainframe or elsewhere.
I’m an admirer of Henri Cartier Bresson, especially because I’m not very good in focusing myself. His photos are in many instances out of focus. He’s the millimeter artist. There is a lot to learn from him in this video.

Doutzen Kroes lands Cool Film role in Nova Zembla


Doutzen is probably one of our best export products. As a top fashion model she’s been the face of L’Oreal and Victoria’s Secret – Uhm maybe more than just a face…recently.

In January, 2011 the 25 years young lady has given birth to a healthy young daughter and just 8 weeks thereafter the media proudly announced her belly was back in form…

Yesterday it was announced (also by herself on Twitter) she has landed a Feature Film role for a project of Eye Works, Nova Zembla. It will tell a story about Dutch navigator Willem Barentz who attempted several times to discover a North East passage to India above Siberia. One of his attempts ended in his ship stuck in a field of icebergs which caused the crew to stay at the Nova Zebla Island during the winter of 1596.

I predict that Doutzen’s warm voice and personality will cause the ice to melt.

As I said earlier: The Netherlands is worth a trip solely to enjoy the beauty of its women! A (Michelin Guide) three star country in that respect.

Long Live The Queen!


Yesterday our Queen Beatrix celebrated her birthday. Painful that I forgot to post this yesterday, especially since I had made a couple of my own portraits of her last year. She has a beautiful smile! Hasn’t she? A belated happy birthday to the Majesty!

Disclosure: These photos are cropped. That’s all photoshopping I’ve done.

Yes! The Dutch Do Have Beautiful Girls! (2)

I’ve said this earlier: The Netherlands is worth a trip solely to enjoy the beauty of its woman! Some may add: “and/or the beauty of its men” :-)

However, now this Dutchman can proudly show you his own beautiful offshoot: His first granddaughter.

Her mother and press agent, my DD#2 (Dear Daughter number 2), is very adamant that the publishing rights of Photos of our little princess, certainly Holland’s next top model, are strictly under her control to which I should adhere. So this proud grand dad has been sitting on his hands for more than a week before he could share this beauty with you:-)

For completeness sake I have to admit that this is an Anglo Dutch co-production.
