Henri Cartier-Bresson, at 86, is the elder statesman of European photography. Paris and its people have always been present in his work, ever since he started taking pictures during the late 1920s. It is remarkable, therefore, that he has not made an earlier collection of his images of this city. "Henri Cartier-Bresson's Paris" is the master's personal selection of over 140 of his best Paris photographs, aiming to present images of a rare, almost crystalline clarity. He could be said to unfold a kind of intellectual reconstruction of the city, reaching beyond the cliches of tourism and popular myth. This is a gallery of urban landscapes rendered by a great sensibility. The text, by Andre Pieyre de Manidargues and Vera Feyder, describes the story of Cartier-Bresson's involvement with Paris and its place in his overall achievement.
