ForewordThe work of Henri Cartier-Bresson is internationally renowned and widely celebrated. His idiosyncratic approach to reportage has produced many classic images of contemporary iconography.
This new collection of city and landscapes by Henri Cartier-Bresson taken over a lifetime of travel to far-flung locales in every corner of the globe demonstrates his ability to capture a subtlety of vision at the decisive moment. From the stillness of classical Greek ruins to the puffing and belching of a modern factory chimney, each of the photographs in this volume-whether of natural or urban views-reaches to the core of human existence.
