The Friendship of Saul Steinberg and Henri Cartier-Bresson
Steinberg and Cartier-Bresson became friends in 1946. Steinberg was visiting Paris, and Cartier-Bresson introduced him to a bunch of French intellectuals. They kept a life-long friendship.
Steinberg even drew Cartier-Bresson one of his famous “false documents”: a fake diploma, giving him “permission” to be a photographer:
Cartier-Bresson had always wanted to be a painter and he loved to draw. Later in life, in 1983, after an exhibit of his drawings was shown at the MoMA, Steinberg wrote him a nice note about his drawings:
I often look at your drawings in the Museum of Modern Art catalogue. To my mind, photography was a form of gymnastics for you, a sort of decoy, an alibi for your real thing in life.”
(The document image is from the terrific book, Saul Steinberg: Illuminations)
In my opinion, it’s more interesting to see magic happening in a world that feels grounded. If the world is already crazy, then anything can happen. So it’s better to start with something real. - Michel Gondry
