Translated by Carole Naggar

Presented for the first time in English, this volume brings together twelve notable interviews and conversations with Henri Cartier-Bresson carried out between 1951 and 1998. While many of us are acquainted with his images, there are so few texts available by Cartier-Bresson on his photographic process. These verbal, primary accounts capture the spirit of the master photographer and serve as a lasting document of his life and work, which has inspired generations of photographers and artists.

About the author: Henri Cartier-Bresson began his career in photography in 1930. A pioneer of the documentary photography genre, he was one of the founders, along with Robert Capa, of the photography agency Magnum. He is considered one of the major artists of the twentieth century, and his work has appeared in hundreds of publications, museums, and galleries worldwide.

Interviews with Daniel Masclet, Richard L. Simon,Byron Dobell, Yvonne Baby, Sheila Turner-Seed, Yves Bourde, Alain Desvergnes, Gilles A. Tiberghien, Gilles Mora, Philippe Boegner, and Pierre Assouline
