This is the largest and most complete collection of images by Cartier Bresson I ve seen It includes not just photographs but drawings as well as some films clips There s also a fair amount of text, certainly a must see for fans of this artist s work. A serious retrospective book on HCB of course I would love it in principle If you chance upon the book not knowing the photographer for sure, then do browse it, he is probably the greatest photographer ever.Now regarding this as a book and what I wanted it to be, I was very disappointed The texts are mostly irrelevant and somewhat pompous, there is hardly any context to photos apart from place Sometimes misspelled castel de san jorge which does not say much for the erudition of the editors A serious retrospective book on HCB of course I would love it in principle If you chance upon the book not knowing the photographer for sure, then do browse it, he is probably the greatest photographer ever.Now regarding this as a book and what I wanted it to be, I was very disappointed The texts are mostly irrelevant and somewhat pompous, there is hardly any context to photos apart from place Sometimes misspelled castel de san jorge which does not say much for the erudition of the editors and date and maybe a few explanations just a couple of photos, namely the very very famous photo of a woman recognizing the gestapo informer who denounced her Almost no context to any particular photo The organization of the book is frustrating is sort of thematic but some of the themes do not make much sense, photos taken 30 years apart and of very different moods are all mixed together just because they were taken in America The format of the book itself is perhaps badly chosen, we all know HCB only used one format ratio for his photos, so picking a format for a book of his should be easy right No, this is a odd ratio, so some of the large photos are spread over two pages and ruined by the slope of the binding And it is a format which feels uncomfortable for photos of this ratio, there is a lot of dynamically wasted white space which of course is just wasted white space The selections of what to print big I also found frustrating, if this was meant to be a retrospective they should not have been afraid to go with the obvious, sometimes some photos are very famous for a reason On personal taste, I would have preferredof his early photos any recommendations of books on his pre Magnum work There are 3 chapters on respectively his drawings, his movies and family snapshots, for anybody particularly interested in those None of his color photos are included I am mentioning those not because of their quality, but because they should probably be included on a retrospective And are mentioned and portrayed in the smallest cheapest book on him we can find And most unforgivable of all, the printing is strange Many photos are very blurry I don t know what is the condition of the negative now, or what it was then, but at least from memory, I think have seen some of these printed muchsharply I really do not recommend this As an introduction and information source the little cheapie TH book, which is the cheapest book on HCB around is much better As a retrospective The Scrapbook, a facsimile of his work as selected by him is muchmoving and coherent This book was published in 2003 in conjunction with HCB s 95th birthday as a retrospective of his lifetime s work including his work regarding film and drawing as well as photography A handful of essays mostly just applauding HCBfor what a great guy he is and admired artist The last essay I felt said the most about his artistic philosophy and the contradiction at which he presents himself as photojournalist stating in the 1970s that he never considered himself a good photojournalis This book was published in 2003 in conjunction with HCB s 95th birthday as a retrospective of his lifetime s work including his work regarding film and drawing as well as photography A handful of essays mostly just applauding HCBfor what a great guy he is and admired artist The last essay I felt said the most about his artistic philosophy and the contradiction at which he presents himself as photojournalist stating in the 1970s that he never considered himself a good photojournalist or reporter Obviously a flat out lie or a bit of sarcasm on his part Approximately 600 works are represented here it s a pretty good size book about 400 pages Even though there are some photographs here that supposedly have not been seen before, I ve seen most of the works presented here I do think if this is your first exposure to HCB the reprints here of his work aren t that impressive Some were too small and the arrangement was a bit jumbly I preferred MoMA s recent catalogue from his exhibit last year, A Modern Century which presented approximately 200 of his works Still one of the greatest photographers ever no matter what century you consider I am unabashedly not well versed in photography so take that for what it s worth.This book was a recommendation by a Goodreader who knows I at least appreciate art and so I bought the book.From what I can tell Cartier Bresson is a master The early 20th century should thank him for his work.As I went through this book, I felt a pang of sadness at the first groupings of photos, wishing this artist had only captured my country And so what a delight when I came to the second half of the book an I am unabashedly not well versed in photography so take that for what it s worth.This book was a recommendation by a Goodreader who

Bresson has the gift of capturing those human moments that define both a time and a place I love the arrangement of the photos by their sections and the life of Cartier Bresson is well documented in this tome My favorite is his French idyllic photographs and my absolute favorite is still Rue Mouffetard.This is a treat This is ultimate coffee table book, but not just for showing off Evocative photography captures the definitive moment in exquisite style Some of my favourite photographs ever are in this retrospective collection, which is a wonderful way to while away a few hours and lose yourself in other worlds This book actually fired up my love for HCB, leading me to take a special trip to the beautiful city of Edinburgh to view a retrospective in person it was soooo worth it. Henri Cartier Bresson is one of my all time favs I had a chance to see a retrospective of his work in Barcelona, Spain a few years ago which included Photographs, Plates, Life Mag covers, Drawings, and Films he did More than 350 pieces of his work in addition to 100 images of other artists he chose as having the Decisive Moment My all time top Art Experience and it was FREE I spent a total of 9 hours there at the museum in two days Gotta love Spain. the ultimate HCB book, lots of never before seen images. An amazing collection of photography spanning Cartier Bresson s life Very interesting commentary on the different stages of his life Beautiful collection of photographs. His photographs are just beautiful Candid and raw in all his works I didn t realize how diverse he was and after reading the book, appreciate him evenas a an artist and photojournalist. These are photographs you could spend your entire life looking at.
