“The intensive use of photographs by mass media lays ever fresh responsibilities upon the photographer. We have to acknowledge the existence of a chasm between the economic needs of our consumer society and the requirements of those who bear witness to this epoch. This affects us all, particularly

the younger generations of photographers. We must take greater care than ever not to allow ourselves to be separated from the real world and from humanity.”

— Henri Cartier-Bresson, photographer, photography, French
