Propos De Paris

Genre: Coffee Table; Author: Henri Cartier-Bresson

In Propos de Paris, Henri Cartier-Bresson reminds us why Paris seeps into our bones and settles there. ”Photography is nothing,” he said. ”It’s life that interests me.” Indeed, the City of Light is merely a background in his works represented here (1932-1976), and its composition a frame in which to capture the vitality of the people who live there. From a protest in the streets to a scene from the ballet, Cartier-Bresson captures life at its most vibrant. A+
