Coco Chanel, Paris, 1964 by Henri Cartier-Bresson

I was at the SF MOMA earlier this year and was happy to see a portrait of Mlle. Chanel in a photography exhibition of the works of Henri Cartier-Bresson.  It shows Coco in her apartment at 31 Rue Cambon in 1964.  I love how Chanel looks deep in her thoughts and it’s not posed and smiley.  It just looks like Cartier-Bresson captured a quiet moment when she was reflecting.
