The very essence of modern photography is that it gives the opportunity to capture forever, a moment which is fleeting, blink and you miss it.
“The Decisive Moment” was a term coined by the pioneer of street photography, Henri Cartier-Bresson. Cartier-Bresson believed that “The Decisive Moment” was that split second of genius and inspiration that a photographer had to capture a certain moment.
Whether it be a moment caught when the landscape provides a “wow” response, like the sun appearing through clouds, casting it’s beams across the skies; or maybe something in nature happens in front of our eyes and we feel privileged to have been witness to it, such as babies being born; or whether it is that moment between people, their faces showing the multitude of emotions that they are unable to speak.
These are just a few of the many ways in which this theme may be interpreted and we look forward to receiving your entries with your own interpretations.
