In Conversation: John Suler

In this digital age when we are flooded all day long with many types of images created via many different methods, what makes photography unique? Many will agree that the answer to this question can be found in The Decisive Moment, the classic book by Henri Cartier-Bresson that set the stage for one of the most controversial, mythic, and even mystical concepts in the history of photography.


In this lecture, Professor John Suler will describe how his research has identified the essential ingredients of a decisive moment photograph, including the capture of a unique fleeting moment, the sensing of visual coalescence, the anticipation of closure, losing and creating oneself, and the portrayal of “little human moments” that point to the universal struggles and triumphs of the human condition.
