Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Decisive Moment

Featured image is "Sunday on the banks of the Marne," 1938, by Henri Cartier-Bresson. Published in The Decisive Moment, one of the greatest, most influential photobooks of all time (featured this weekend in Teju Cole's photography column for the New York Times Magazine), it is one of the most iconic photographs of the twentieth century. "To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression," Cartier-Bresson wrote in the original 1952 edition. His words, published anew in Steidl's "meticulous facsimile of the original" remain inspiring.
