Henri Cartier-Bresson, Behind the Gare St. Lazare, Paris
French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson, pioneered the art of street photography and said of this picture: “There was a plank fence around some repairs behind the Gare Saint-Lazare train station. I happened to be peeking through a gap in the fence with my camera at the moment the man jumped.”
