Forgive me if this has been discussed here before. Meant to post this a while back, but I wanted to track down the image first. I saw the Henri Cartier-Bresson retrospective at the MOMA earlier this summer, and while many of the photos were from the great French photojournalist's most famous series of works--the Spanish Civil War, Gandhi's funeral, the fall of the Kuomintang to the Communists in China--there was also this one from 1960, captioned "Ann Arbor, Michigan," depicting a crowd at the Big House watching the Wolverines host Northwestern:
Cartier-Bresson's work is all about capturing "the decisive moment," as he termed it. Could this be the very first photographic evidence of Angry Michigan BLANK-Hating God in action?
mesmerism! presidential assassinations! circuses on fire!
