Contact sheets are a visual diary, a unique look into the photographer’s thought process.
Henri Cartier-Bresson from the Arte Video series: Contacts.
In 2010 I finally tracked down relatively affordable copies of Henri Cartier-Bresson’s landmark books ‘The Decisive Moment’ and ‘Les Européens’. (At left is a photograph of my copy of ‘The Decisive Moment’, fragile, yet treasured). A friend of mine, photographer Brad Rimmer, emailed me a 1953 review of the book revived on American Suburb X.
The original review was published in Image Magazine, Journal of Photography of the George Eastman House, April, 1953.
