Photo Challenge: Inspired by Henri Cartier-Bresson

Posted by Darlene Bouchard — 16 Apr 2010

With the opening of the first major U.S. retrospective in three decades of Henri Cartier-Bresson's photographs at the The Museum of Modern Art New York, we thought it would be appropriate to honor this legend in the field with a photo challenge. As one of photography's most original and influential masters, he created a body of work that documented the cultural transformations of the century that's impressive in geographical scope. The exhibition offers a fresh overview of his achievements because it includes about 300 photographs, more than a fifth of them previously unknown to the public, so it's something you won't want to miss!

One lucky JPGer who enters Photo Challenge: Inspired by Henri Cartier-Bresson will be flown to New York to see the exhibition and document their experience for JPG Magazine! So, visit the The Museum of Modern Art New York, or think about how Henri Cartier-Bresson has inspired your photography and submit today!

Here are a few great entries submitted so far to Photo Challenge: Inspired by Henri Cartier-Bresson:
