About the Author 
  
Henri Cartier-Bresson studied painting in the 1920s and committed himself to photography in the early 1930s. In 1940 he was captured and imprisoned by the Germans before escaping to join the Paris underground. In 1947 he was one of the founders of the photography agency Magnum. His work is featured in the collections of many of the world's most prominent museums.  
  
 
  
Book Description 
  
In more than 100 landscape photographs taken in locations on many continents-particularly Europe, Asia and the U.S.-each image in the book represents one of Cartier-Bresson's "decisive moments." Although some photographs contain people, the focus is on outdoor surroundings, from majestic mountains to flowing rivers, narrow canals and lush topography to cityscapes: the landscapes of Nature and the landscapes of Man as captured by Cartier-Bresson's camera. The accompanying text is an important new and poetic assessment of the artist by Erik Orsenna.
