Tag Archives: The Decisive Moment


“At this point in my life I am not very sure anymore what the decisive moment really is, but I remember that at that moment it all seemed to come together: the destruction from the war, the rather moody guy going for a swim, the setting of the former jewel of the Soviet Union and suddenly this screaming, jumping, playing kid coming in from the top.”

Thomas Dworzak, Magnum Photos

I had no intention of waiting a week, ten days or the time necessary so that something would happen, so that I could get the “decisive moment” looked for so often by photographers… The specific “decisive moment” wasn’t to be found, it had to be created.
