PARIS — Place de l'Europe, Gare Saint Lazare, 1932. Photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson writes, "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. The space between the planks was not entirely wide enough for my lens, which is the reason why the picture is cut off on the left."
Book of the Week: Sleeping by the Mississippi
by Alec Soth
Evolving from a series of road trips along the Mississippi River, Alec Soth's Sleeping by the Mississippi captures America's
iconic yet often neglected "third coast." Sensuous in detail and raw in subject, the book elicits a
mood of loneliness, longing, and reverie.
