Tate Smith interprets the decisive moment for ridiculous results.
We met at the School at the International Center of Photography summer course called "Faces of Coney" taught by photographers Janette Beckman and Merri Cyr. I covered the class for Beckman one day, helping the students edit photographs from their visits to New York's spectacular Coney Island.
All Tate wanted was to quote Henri Cartier-Bresson:
"To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression."
