English Edition - Exhibition catalogue "Henri Cartier-Bresson", at the Centre Pompidou, Paris (12 February - 9 June, 2014).

In addition to some of Cartier-Bresson’s best-known photographs, the catalogue presents many seldom seen or unpublished images and some rarities in color as well as black-and-white.

From his earliest photographs in Paris in the 1920s and Africa in the 1930s, Cartier-Bresson’s capacity to conjure coherence and harmony out of a chaotic world appears effortless and innate—a deep-centered attitude rather than a merely learned technique.

His observations of the effects of poverty and revolution around the world led directly to his pioneering photojournalism and to his co-founding of Magnum Photos. He became renowned for his penetrating portraits of the most prominent figures of his time, becoming, in the words of his biographer Pierre Assouline, “the eye of the century.”

Henri Cartier-Bresson’s work embraced art, politics, revolution, and war. But more powerful than any of these overarching themes was his evident concern for the human individual at every social level.
