Share

Oh Wow!!! I have just received THE most incredible book! This is a brand new edition of The Decisive Moment by Henri Cartier-Bresson – it is not on sale yet. It will go on sale on 12 December 2014 – two days time, I have been sent  a review sample and will publish my review in full shortly but I wanted to let you know about this book first. It’s bound to sell out – I am not sure of the print run, I will try and find out but I do not imagine there will be many copies left. So, I urge you, all of you who are deeply passionate about Henri Cartier-Bressons images (and who isn’t), to place an order below. I have included pre-order links to both the UK, US, Canada, Germany, France Amazon sites. It’s expensive, but it’s a phenomenal book – one that you will cherish for a lifetime.

“The Decisive Momentoriginally called Images à la Sauvette is one of the most famous books in the history of photography, assembling Cartier-Bressons best work from his early years. Published in 1952 by Simon and Schuster, New York, in collaboration with Editions Verve, Paris, it was lavishly embellished with a collage cover by Henri Matisse. The book and its images have since influenced generations of photographers. Its English title has defined the notion of the famous formal peak in which all elements in the photographic frame accumulate to form the perfect image. Paired with the artists humanist viewpoint, Cartier-Bressons photography has become part of the worlds collective memory. This new publication is a meticulous facsimile of the original book. It comes with an additional booklet containing an essay on the history of The Decisive Moment by Centre Pompidou curator Clément Chéroux”.
