For me, only "Spring Corner, NYC", by Melanie Einzig, had any wow factor. Cartier-Bresson's work was OK, but not his best by any means. The pics fall into the 'street photography' genre I suspect, and this selection confirmed my opinion that it's often a very over-rated category.


2.5 really. some photos, mostly till the 80s, are really good, others are poor. And there are only about 5 prints by Cartier Bresson. Have been puzzled by how some guys made it into this exhibition. Especially the series of pictures shot from a car. On the other hand, Joel Meyerowitz, Boris Saveliev and a few others make the exibition worth it.
