This lavishly illustrated monograph – published to accompany France’s first major retrospective since the photographer’s death in 2004 – traces Cartier-Bresson’s development as a photographer, activist, journalist and artist. In addition to some of his best-known photographs, here are many seldom seen or unpublished images, and some rarities in colour as well as black and white.
Henri Cartier-Bresson’s work embraced art, politics, revolution and war. But more powerful than any of these overarching themes was his evident concern for the human individual at every social level. Cartier-Bresson’s observations of the effects of poverty and revolution around the world led directly to his pioneering photojournalism, and his co-founding of Magnum Photos. He also became renowned for his penetrating portraits ofthe most prominent figures of his time: Cartier-Bresson’s biographer Pierre Assouline called him ‘the eye of the century’.
This is an indispensable work for lovers of photography and admirers of Henri Cartier-Bresson, whose influence continues to endure so powerfully today.
