Decisive Moment La Guadalupana

By Jannet Walsh
Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908 – 2004) is known as the father of photojournalism. The famous French photographer really gave birth to the style of photography that is used today by newspaper photographers because of his use of his 35mm camera and this “street style” of photography. The phrase “decisive moment” is associated with this famous photojournalism pioneer. The moment you take or make a photograph really does matter!

I recently had a “decisive moment” while photographing Father Alfonso Cely, a Dominican friar from Colombia, at Catholic Center Our Lady of Guadalupe, in rural Ocala. I have created an audio slideshow to tell more about the particular moment.
