Born on this day – Martine Franck

‘My grandfather killed himself falling off the dike in Ostend while photographing my two cousins. This can happen so easily when looking through a lens: for a split second nothing else exists outside the frame.’

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