Photojournalism Quote

"Reality offers us such wealth that we must cut some of it out on the spot, simplify.
The question is, do we always cut out what we should?
While we're working, we must be conscious of what we're doing. 
Sometimes we have the feeling that we've taken a great photo, and yet we continue to unfold.
We must avoid however, snapping away, shooting quickly and without thought, overloading ourselves with unnecessary images that clutter our memory and diminish the clarity of the whole"
-Henri Cartier-Bresson-
on photojournalism, American Photo, Sept/Oct 1997.
