Henri Cartier-Bresson's Paris" is the master's personal selection of over 140 of his best Paris photographs, aiming to present images of a rare, almost crystalline clarity. He could be said to unfold a kind of intellectual reconstruction of the city, reaching beyond the cliches of tourism and popular myth. This is a gallery of urban landscapes rendered by a great sensibility. The text, by Andre Pieyre de Manidargues and Vera Feyder, describes the story of Cartier-Bresson's involvement with Paris and its place in his overall achievement. Item #24064
