Roger was quite impressive with his lenses. A true icon among men. He will be missed, dearly



When Morrissey was ill and pulled out of touring with David Bowie, (Southpaw era), I sent him a card with a photo taken by Henri Cartier-Bresson (boy with wine bottles). I see Roger Mayne was inspired by Carter-Bresson. Obvious really. cartier-bresson-rue-mouffetard.jpg
