The Stranger: “A Cat Knows…”

The Stranger. Aug 24:

“A Cat Knows What Anarchy Is”

So says legendary photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson:

The French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson was a photojournalist for Life and other publications for over three decades. He is widely considered to be the master of street photography and the father of modern photojournalism.

Henri loved cats and was once quoted as saying “I’m an anarchist, yes. Because I’m alive. Life is a provocation…. I’m against people in power and what that imposes upon them. Anglo-Saxons have to learn what anarchism is. For them, it’s violence. A cat knows what anarchy is. Ask a cat. A cat understands. They’re against discipline and authority. A dog is trained to obey. Cats can’t be. Cats bring on chaos.”
