Henri Cartier-Bresson, New England, July 4, 1947

Independence Day. “This woman explained to me that the flagpole over her door was broken but ‘on such a day as this, one keeps one’s flag on one’s heart.’” I felt in her a touch of the strength and robustness of the early American pioneers.” –Henri Cartier-Bresson
