Who are you, Henri Cartier-Bresson? : Life's work in 602 pictures

Regular price €89,00 EUR
Who is hidden behind the legendary initials HCB, who exactly is Henri Cartier-Bresson - this man who, against his will, became a myth, who shaped photography, and not just photojournalism of the 20th century, with his very personal style and ethos who knew how to combine form and content in such a way that today it seems unthinkable to represent the world of facts and the visible, whether everyday or spectacular, in any other way than he did for half a century? The question is as complex and multi-layered as the personality and work of Henri Cartier-Bresson, whose 95th birthday is being celebrated this year with two extraordinary events: in the spring with a major retrospective at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Paris, and with the The large monograph accompanying the exhibition, which we offer here in German translation. On over 400 pages, in eight text contributions by well-known authors - including Jean Clair, Peter Galassi and Robert Delpire - and with more than 600 illustrations, this opulent book provides the definitive answers to the question of who the photographer and filmmaker was Artist, cosmopolitan and human being Henri Cartier-Bresson.
