Portraits by one of the century's master photographers, Henri Cartier-Bresson are on display in Washington, D.C. He's 92 now and concentrates on painting and drawing. In his earlier years, Bresson pioneered photojournalism and portrait photography, looking always, with his clear blue eyes, for the "decisive moment" that would tell the story. This show includes revealing photos of Marilyn Monroe, Arthur Miller, a very young Truman Capote, and Jean Paul-Sartre. NPR's Susan Stamberg reports.
