Michael Brenson is an art critic and the author of numerous books, including Visionaries and Outcasts, Acts of Engagement and Culture in Action.Review:
"The photography of Henri Cartier-Bresson has resulted in a body of work unique in the history of this craft, not alone in kind but in quality. Apart from the fact that he is responsible for more individual memorable images than any other photographer in his epoch, his attitude toward his art . . . is based on a philosophy at once traditional, logical, and exemplary."--Lincoln Kirstein
