Henri Cartier-Bresson / Scrapbook: Photographs 1932-1946
Agnès Sire and Michel Frizot
In 1946 Cartier-Bresson travelled to New York with about 300 prints in his suitcase, bought a scrapbook , glued each one in and brought that album to MoMA’s curators. Here, published for the first time in its entirety, is a facsimile of that famous scrapbook.
Agnès Sire has been the director of the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson in Paris since its creation in 2003. Michel Frizot is a French historian of photography.
