Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first compilation of writings by a master of photography.

One of the leading lights in photography of the twentieth century, Henri Cartier-Bresson is also a shrewd observer and critic. His writings on photography and photographers, which have appeared sporadically over the past forty-five years, are gathered here for the first time. Several have never before appeared in English.

The Mind's Eye features Cartier-Bresson's famous text on "the decisive moment" as well as his observations on Moscow, Cuba, and China during turbulent times, which ring with the same immediacy and visual intensity that he brings to his photography.

Cartier-Bresson remains as direct and insightful as ever in his writings. His commentary on photographer friends he has known-including Robert Capa, André Kertész, Ernst Haas, and Sarah Moon-reveal the impassioned and compassionate vision for which Cartier-Bresson is beloved.

Book News Annotation:

A compilation of writings on photography by one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century. His observations ring with the same immediacy and visual intensity that characterize his photographs. Writings from Cartier-Bresson's books are included, as well as essays on his travels and commentary on photographer friends. Some of the selections have appeared in books and journals over the past 45 years but have never been available in a single volume. Several selections have never before appeared in English. Includes b&w photos by Cartier-Bresson. Lacks a subject index.
