The paper relates that Man Ray's contributions to photography centered on his innovative photographic techniques and his imaginative manipulation to create a surrealistic effect. The author points out that Cartier-Bresson is renowned for his seminal contribution to the "decisive moment" and his evocative and uncomplicated style. The paper concludes that, while Man Ray clearly saw himself as a surrealist, Cartier-Bresson rejected that title. Ultimately, however, Cartier-Bresson's approach to the "decisive moment" overshadows Man Ray's substantial contributions.
From the Paper:"Cartier-Bresson had a strong respect for the demands of photojournalism and spent a great deal of his life working as a de-facto photojournalist. Among other important events, he photographed a dying Gandhi, and the 1938 Coronation of King George VI in London. Most of his photographs were taken with his simple and unobtrusive 35 mm camera and with only a 50 mm lens. Cartier-Bresson famously forbade printers from cropping his photographs."
