Magnum Series: Henri Cartier-Bresson

Member of the Abe Lincoln Brigade, Spanish Civil War
Magnum Photos is an international photographic cooperative owned by its photographer-members, with offices located in New York, Paris, London and Tokyo. According to co-founder Henri Cartier-Bresson, "Magnum is a community of thought, a shared human quality, a curiosity about what is going on in the world, a respect for what is going on and a desire to transcribe it visually."
Russia. Pskov. 1973
And interestingly -but not surprising- many members and subjects show berets! I am very happy to have found a treasure trove of (often vintage) beret photographs; a new series on The Beret Project is born!

To start if off: co-founder Henri Cartier-Bresson.
