The Mind's Eye
Writings on Photography and PhotographersBook - 1999
"Among the most influential photographers of the twentieth century, a founder of Magnum Photos and the man responsible for the term "the decisive moment," Henri Cartier-Bresson is also a sharply insightful critic and observer." "The Mind's Eye is the first compilation of his writings on photography, some of which have appeared sporadically in books and journals over the past forty-five years but have never been available in a single volume. Several of the texts have never before appeared in English." "Now ninety years old, Cartier-Bresson seldom photographs; he devotes much of his time to drawing, and remains as forceful and discerning as ever in his writings. The last section of The Mind's Eye includes his commentary on photographer friends he has known - including Robert Capa, Andre Kertesz, Ernst Haas, and Sarah Moon - which reveal the impassioned and compassionate vision for which Cartier-Bresson is beloved."--Jacket.
