Wikipedia calls him a pioneer of photojournalism.

The photographer's words from Gautrand's book:
One should take a photo only when one feels full of love for one's fellow-man.
(I like that sentiment so much.)
Life is by no means happy, but we still have humour, a sort of hiding-place in which the emotion that we feel is imprisoned.
This little study leaves me inspired each week... not necessarily to mimic the styles I'm finding (like I thought it would), but it makes me want to continue loving 'my fellow man' with my camera.
(I'd still like to mimic their styles a bit; just for the challenge and practice. Easier said than done though:)
