Andrew’s office hrs / the big font reveal

TA Andrew will hold office hours on Friday this week, from 9am – 11am in Harriman 010.

The font on the test was Helvetica Light, which has been in the news (as much as a font is ever in the news) because it is the font for Apple’s new mobile operating system iOS 7.
The solutions will be posted no later than tomorrow night, unless something crazy happens.
Henri Cartier-Bresson was a photographer active in the middle of the 20th century, and an early adopter of the 35mm format, which allowed him to capture the “decisive moment” (this became the English title of his most famous book of photographs). He was one of the first practitioners of street photography, a field in which his influence remains strong.
“Photographier: c’est dans un même instant et en une fraction de seconde reconnaître un fait et l’organisation rigoureuse de formes perçues visuellement qui expriment et signifient ce fait”
(“To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression.”)
*Incidentally, I originally wrote “He was one of the first street photographers, a field in which his influence remains strong.” I changed it because “street photographers” isn’t a field, “street photography” is. Quick grammar tip.
