Propos De Paris


Details Writer: Henri Cartier-Bresson; Genre: Coffee Table

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+
