Cartier-Bresson Image

Great story in the Guardian in a series on people who feature in famous images.

That’s Me in the Picture

Incredible to think you could somehow phone up a figure as famous as Henri Cartier-Bression and ask if he could do you some copies.

Reminded me of the story of the young and aspiring comedy writer Peter Cook who wrote to the BBC and ended up going out for lunch with the writer of one of their hit show The Goons, Spike Milligan.

That sort of access is just not so easy nowadays which is a sad, but understandable, thing.
