About the Book
SYNCHRONY - simultanious action, development, or occurrence. Another term for Synchronicity; the simultaneous occurrence of events that appear significantly related but have no discernable caual connection - originally coined in the 1950s by C.G.Jung.
This book is a tribute to the genre and master of Reportage photography and the "decisive moment" of chance events - Henri Cartier-Bresson. These seeming chance events have meaning or narrative in the instant of the camera capture. This genre of photography is also called "street photography," but is not random or shoot-from-the-hip. The act of shooting people in this mode is much like hunting prey or delicate butterfly - quietly, with anticipation and readiness, anticipating the moment to unfold.
Catching these decisive moments, seen and composed as an artist, result in a certain wonderment about the flow of time, discreet durations of time, time and the eternal, the finite and the infinite.
