The Decisive Moment is generally considered the most important photo book of the last century, & this is a brief review & plea for republication of the landmark book.
Like The Family of Man in the 1950s, Our World e-fotobook by Simón Cherpitel features fine photography and photos of people and places from all over the world. Each photo is self-contained yet part of the whole. His photo collection speaks to the millennium. Henri Cartier-Bresson is the photographer Cherpitel admires most & this photo book reflects the photojournalism of Cartier-Bresson. Cherpitel photos in Our World were published by Life Magazine and Communication Arts Magazine. Cherpitel learned graphic design and typography from master typographer and graphic design great Herb Lubalin.
The first chapter of Fotos in the Fog novel by Cherpitel to read or download. A noir mystery thriller set in Marin County, California, in June 1958, during the weeks that Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo plays first run and Orson Welles' Touch of Evil barely plays. Fotos in the Fog rips apart 1950s nostalgia as David Lynch's Blue Velvet expose the underbelly of small town Americana.
