As part of the curriculum, all emphasis' under Comm had to take the same core classes which all involved some sort of history lesson on the development of mass communication. All of which included photography as big jump from cartoons to real images in newspapers showing the gory deaths from car accidents and war. As I moved into my photography major, we always learned about Henri Cartier Bresson. A pioneer in street photography and you can't help but want to learn more about him and his work. Check him out, google him. Find him on Wikipedia, or just click here :).
And here are only a tiny glimpse at what he did over the years as a photographer. If photographers had their own world, he'd have a monument dedicated to him. Yeah, I went there.
