So much can be written of this photograph, taken by Henri Cartier-Bresson in New York in 1946. So little really needs to be said, though. It shows the reunion of a mother and son who were separated during World War II. Their exact story we don't know, though its toll is plain to see. The viewer's attention is initially focused on the weeping mother and son. But other emotions surround. The older man at right looks anxiously toward the tearful reunion, while two men at the top of the frame appear elated -- overjoyed to the same degree as the mother and son are overcome. Others appear with decidedly less affect. It is this confluence of so many emotions - simple, poignant, unprovoked - that I think distinguishes this photograph as a masterful depiction of the human condition.
