Masters of Photography

Henri Cartier-Bresson

Henri Cartier-Bresson reveals–as only a few great artists have done–the variety and richness of human experience in the twentieth century. This second volume of Aperture’s Masters of Photography series confirms the genius of the photographer who–with the new, smaller, hand-held cameras and faster films–defined the idea of “the decisive moment” in photography. Cartier-Bresson’s imagery is intimate but utterly respectful of his subjects. In his travels throughout the world, he has captured glimpses of individual lives in scores of countries. Taken together, Cartier-Bresson’s works constitute a personal history of epic scope.
