This book just takes my breath away and it is worth a trip to Paris to find the locations and try to recapture his images yourself. Arrived quickly and well packaged A**** seller

A superb anthology of photographs by H Cartier - Bresson covering a number of themes (portraits- mostly, buildings, Public spaces, the Seine and various events) all based in Paris. A good introductory essay creates the frame for the photographs that follow. Most photographs are printed 15cm x 22cm.

Henri Cartier-Bresson, master of (creator indeed of the phrase) 'the decisive moment,' here celebrates over 50 years of observation and humour from his home base of Paris, France. Everything from gunfights (against the Nazis) to dogfights (well, they're actually making love not war) is here, captured by the fastest shutter finger in the business.
Cartier-Bresson is 90 this year, and has gathered together a beautifully rendered set of 131 plates, any one of which is good enough for over the mantelpiece. As a coffee-table book, A Propos de Paris will entertain you and flatter your tastes as far as your guests are concerned.

Another great books of this great artist. This is the third Thames and Hudson book that I bought about HCB. The others are America in Passing and The Europeans. Three masterpieces very well printed!

Interesting photos taken on a Leica ( I have a lllF) between 1929 - 75 but a few were out of focus and showed camera shake - having said that should I expect more as generally they were well composed grab shots (perhaps some of them with close up people in them were set up). Good value for money but I do not think I will be walking around locally or even in Canterbury taking these type of photos - I prefer weddings, landscapes and portraits and unknown people do not like me putting a camera with a 50mm or 35mm lens in their face!.
