Last month saw the passing of experimental Chilean photographer Sergio Larraín. This image is a favourite of mine, but his work famously caught the eye of Henri Cartier-Bresson, and saw him earn the role as a contributing photographer for Magnum (gallery).
Larrain was endlessly experimental. One afternoon in the 1950s, he was taking photographs outside Notre Dame in Paris and captured scenes between a couple which he only noticed when he developed the film. This provided the inspiration for Julio Cortázar’s extraordinary 1959 story The Devil’s Drool, which in turn was the basis for Michelangelo Antonioni’s 1966 film Blow-Up. - Guardian
