Famous Photographers Tell How

There is a 1958 vinyl record entitled “Famous Photographers Tell How” with the voices of a number of photographic legends: Weegee, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Philippe Halsman, Bert Stern, Tana Hoban, etc. Ted Barron put up MP3 excerpts by Weegee and Cartier-Bresson talking about their photographic processes that can be heard here. It is well worth spending a few minutes.

(Thanks to Daryl Lang’s blog for Photo District News, and to Joseph Rodriguez for pointing it out.)

  1. I transcribed the Henri Cartier Bresson interview into a written word document and you can find it on my site under ’scribbling in the dark’, along with the other photographers’ talks. It was easier for me to fully digest what he was saying by reading than listening alone, and I figured it would be good to have it out there for anyone wanting to reference it down the line, as well as for anyone who has trouble with HCB’s accent. If I get time, I’ll transcribe the Weegee one as well.
