Montier's doctoral thesis makes up the text of this important book, which is part biography, part catalog, and part critical explication. The text, supplemented with images of Cartier-Bresson's nonphotographic work, shows the varied sides of the photographer. But we don't really need to see the paintings and drawings of Cartier-Bresson.
