About this Item

First edition in English of Cartier-Bresson's famous photobook, "capturing the essence of what has not previously been seen," with 114 large photogravures (many double-page) and bright cover designed by Joan Mir? Folio, original illustrated boards. Signed by Henri Cartier-Bresson on the title page. Fine in a near fine acetate dust jacket. With the captions booklet laid in. Henri Cartier-Bresson is perhaps the greatest photographer of the twentieth century, The Europeans, along with The Decisive Moment are his finest books. Henri Cartier-Bresson's amazing feat as a photographer is the ability to follow his heart and the keen vision of his mind and eye in each photograph. His subjects are only part of the image in the viewfinder, whose composition he sometimes arranges with geometric precision. Many of his best photographs also have startlingly broad political and sociological connotations, which gives the ordinary subjects extraordinary dignity, even grandeur. Europeans is filled with these images, which are often visually complex as well. Bookseller Inventory # 2330
