Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Decisive Moment examines Cartier-Bressons influential publication, widely considered to be one of the most important photobooks of the twentieth century. Pioneering for its emphasis on the photograph itself as a unique narrative form, The Decisive Moment was described by Robert Capa as a Bible for photographers.
Originally titled Images à la Sauvette (images on the run) in the French, the book was published in English with a new title, The Decisive Moment , which unintentionally imposed the motto which would define Cartier-Bressons work. The exhibition details how the decisions made by the collaborators in this major projectincluding Cartier-Bresson, French art publisher Tériade, American publisher Simon & Schuster, and Henri Matisse, who designed the books coverhave shaped our understanding of Cartier-Bressons photographs. Through vintage gelatin silver prints, first-edition publications, periodicals, and correspondence, Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Decisive Moment brings new insights to this iconic work.
