When Henri Cartier-Bresson fortuitously chanced upon the moment that a cheeky, young French boy was wandering down Rue Mouffetard in central Paris, hugging a bottle of wine in each arm, little did the great photographer know that the image would become one of the most iconic in photographic history. Hurrying home, the youngster's smile is rich with pride. The year is 1954; he is a child of the post-war period and emblematic of a certain European resilience. And yet, more than this, people love this photograph for its timeless quality, the way Cartier-Bresson captures something so essential about childhood.
