Although some photographs contain people, the focus is on outdoor surroundings, from majestic mountains to flowing rivers, narrow canals and lush topography to cityscapes: the landscapes of Nature and the landscapes of Man as captured by Cartier-Bresson's camera. The accompanying text is an important new and poetic assessment of the artist by Erik Orsenna.Read Less

New in New jacket. 4to-over 9¾"-12" tall. First North American Edition. 4to. Magnum agency cofounder Henri Cartier-Bresson's idiosyncratic approach to photography and reportage has produced many classic images of humans and their world. This collection of 105 duotone photographs, taken over a lifetime of travel in postwar Europe and all over the globe, demonstrates his ability to capture subtleties in the landscape at a decisive moment or point of view. Erik Orsenna offers a poetic text introducing some of Cartier-Bresson's themes, including the juxtaposition of trees and tombstones; how snow and mist alter the perception of the landscape; trains and rails through the landscape; shadows and steps; and all sorts of people walking and watching. 240 pp. New in new dustjacket, sealed in publisher's shrinkwrap.
