Born on this day – Martine Franck

‘Photography came as a substitute. I was painfully shy and found talking to people difficult; a camera in hand gave me a function, a reason to be somewhere, a witness, but not an actor.’

Martine Franck (Belgian documentary and portrait photographer, co-founder and president of the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation) – April 2, 1938 – August 16, 2012.
