In Decem­ber 1948, Hen­ri Car­tier-Bres­son tra­v­eled to Chi­na at the request of Life maga­zi­ne. He wound up stay­ing for ten mon­ths and cap­tu­red some of the most spec­ta­cu­lar moments in China’s histo­ry: he pho­to­gra­phed Bei­jing in “the last days of the Kuomintang,” and then hea­ded back to Shang­hai, whe­re he bore wit­ness to the new regime’s take­over. Moreo­ver, in 1958, Hen­ri Car­tier-Bres­son was one of the first Wes­tern pho­to­graph­ers to go back to Chi­na to explo­re the chan­ges that had occur­red over the pre­ce­ding deca­de. The “pic­tu­re sto­ries” he sent to Magnum and Life on a regu­lar basis play­ed a key role in Wes­ter­ners’ under­stan­ding of Chi­ne­se poli­ti­cal events. Many of the­se images are among the best-known and most signi­fi­cant pho­to­graphs in Cartier-Bresson’s oeu­vre; his empa­thy with the popu­lace and sen­se of respon­si­bi­li­ty as a wit­ness making them an important part of his legacy.

Hen­ri Car­tier-Bres­son: Chi­na 1948–1949, 1958 allows the­se pho­to­graphs to be reex­ami­ned along with all of the docu­ments that were pre­ser­ved: the photographer’s cap­ti­ons and comments, con­ta­ct she­ets, and abundant cor­re­spon­dence, as well as the publis­hed ver­si­ons that appeared in both Ame­ri­can and Euro­pean maga­zi­nes. A wel­co­me addi­ti­on to any pho­to­gra­phy lover’s books­helf, this is an exci­ting new volu­me on one of the twen­tieth century’s most important photographers.
