Wow. What a find, and thanks for posting it. That's something to definitely watch over and over again.
It is a little funny to find it here. Everything he was, and all the work he did, is the antithesis of what we do as stock photographers.
It makes me wonder who will be the defining artists of the 21st Century, specifically of digital photography. Will it be what is captured with the camera, or what is processed with the software?
It's also sad to think that he never would have been able to do the work he did in this modern world, not with copyright constraints, privacy issues, MRs, and the growing hostility towards photographers and increasing limitations put on us. But, like he said, you can't go back.

Perhaps Mr. Bresson would just say "its just a tool"
He is an inspiration in his humility and his purity of mind about his art. I sometimes have "Bresson days" to clear my head where I just shoot for my mind's eye and nothing else. I don't usually get anything good, but I learn something new everytime.
Thank you so much for the link...incredible.
