Description

Born in 1908 in France, Henri Cartier-Bresson is considered to be the father of modern photojournalism. Early on he adopted the versatile 35mm format and helped develop the popular “street photography” style, influencing generations of photographers that followed. In his own words, he expressed that “the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity, the master of the instant which, in visual terms, questions and decides simultaneously. . . . It is by economy of means that one arrives at simplicity of expression.”

 

In 1947 Cartier-Bresson founded Magnum Photos with four other photographers. August 22 will be the 100th anniversary of his birth.

display_description "Henri Cartier-Bresson's photography came to define the 20th century. This book tells his life story through his images: all the major events from this youth to his death in 2004 are described, contextualized, and analysed in the light of his photographic work. From his early encounters with the Surrealists, his film work, and his experiences in the Second World War, to the development of his own personal aesthetic, the concept of the 'decisive moment', and the foundation of Magnum Photos, his influence on the world has been profound and unforgettable."--BOOK JACKET.
