In this book, based on extensive original research and on the generous cooperation of the artist, Peter Galassi provides a wealth of new information and examines the early work in the cultural and social context from which it grew. Drawing comparisons with other works of advanced painting and photography, he stresses the inventiveness of Cartier-Bresson’s early photography and demonstrates the high artifice that lies behind its vitality and immediacy- behind its view of experience as an incomplete adventure happening right here and right now. 152 pp.; 129 illus. Published in 1987 and edited by Peter Galassi, this rare book from MoMA Publications is available in extremely limited quantities.
