Publisher's full black cloth, silver lettering on spine. Profusely illustrated with 200 duotone photographs by Henri Cartier-Bresson, all beautifully reproduced entirely on glossy stock. Text in English. Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004) was a French humanist photographer considered a master of candid photography, and an early user of 35 mm film. He pioneered the genre of street photography, and viewed photography as capturing a 'decisive moment.' His work has influenced many photographers around the world. Cartier-Bresson's photographs were also influential in the development of cinéma vérité film. In particular, he is credited as the inspiration for the National Film Board of Canada's early work in this genre with its 1958 'Candid Eye' series. Cartier-Bresson first published a photographic collection entitled 'The Europeans' in 1955, a portrait of the post-war continent whose occupants lived among ruins and still bore the marks of hunger and devastation. In this new volume of images, spanning a period from the late 1920s to the 1970s, the celebrated photographer has surveyed a region whose separate parts have, over the years, begun to take on a "family likeness" and documenting the face of Europe at a time when the boundaries between individual countries appeared to be breaking down.. Both the volume and the unclipped dust jacket are in perfect, pristine condition; unread, unmarked, tight, square, and clean. AS NEW/AS NEW.. Photographs. 4to 11" - 13" tall. 231 pp
