Classic Magnum Photography

The Magnum Photos and Slate collaboration began on Dec 1, 2005, and the first uploaded set begins with:

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.”

Incidentally, yesterday’s set was dedicated to the late master.
