Henri Cartier-Bresson by Erik Orsenna
Book DescriptionThe incomparable photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson is renowned for his ability to capture striking and memorable images of people and places. He has described his personal approach to photography as being 'at one and the same time the recognition of a fact in a fraction of a second and the rigorous arrangement of the forms visually perceived which give the fact expression and significance'. This book is the first major publication to deal with Cartier-Bresson's landscape photography. His work as a reporter took Cartier-Bresson through many countries and continents - his passion for China, India and Spain is well-known and well documented in other books published by Thames & Hudson - but his extraordinary country and city landscapes are a lesser-known part of his oeuvre. These richly diverse and compelling images, many of which have never been published before, are superbly reproduced in this volume by the finest quality duotone printing. They underscore yet again Cartier-Bresson's reputation as the geniune master of photography.
