This print was made during Cartier-Bresson's assignment in China for LIFE in 1948, which the photographer chronicled extensively in his 1956 volume, China in Transition: A Moment in History. While this image ultimately was not used by LIFE, it has attained icon status within the photographer's oeuvre.
