Henri Cartier-Bresson was born in France in 1908. He initially was very interested in painting, but eventually found himself loving surrealist photography. Eventually, he helped develop the "street photography" movement, by taking candid photos of strangers walking around.
Garry Winogrand (1960's were the peak of his career)
Garry Winogrand was best known for his photographic portrayal of America in the mid 1900's. He was in fact, very influenced by the works of Cartier-Bresson but worked in a very different style than he did.He was known as a street photographer who was best known for emphasizing socio-economic issues embedding the New York population in the 1960's particularly.
