Review: Published to coincide with first exhibition at the Foundation Henri Cartier-Bresson in France, this book comprises 97 tri-tone reproductions of some of his works. The photographs span his long career; from ‘Cracow’, taken in 1931, to ‘Melanie Cartier-Bresson’, captured in 1999. With the exception of a thought-provoking introduction by philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy analysing key photos, the majority of the book is pure imagery, of some of the 20th century’s iconic figures, including Marilyn Monroe, Christian Dior and Truman Capote
