Henri Cartier-Bresson The Modern Century: From My Bookshelf
Henri Cartier-Bresson is pretty much the father of Photo Journalism. First off I love big photo books that tell stories and share the photos.
If you want to take a trip through an era that many of us never have seen than you have to check out this book. The stories that are told in these images are breathtaking.
You have your pre-world war two as well as post. You have places like India and Indonesia being captured. Places that at the time he was photographing have not really been seen by the rest of the world.
I can only imagine what people were thinking when they saw images of foreign places for the first time.
This book is laid out in a way where they show you the images first without nothing more than the date. Near the end of the book you have the images re-printed along with more information about image.
I still need to finish reading this one but if you love photojournalism this is a book that is a must have.
