9 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Among the most influential photographers of the twentieth century, a founder of Magnum Photos and the man responsible for the term "the decisive moment," Henri Cartier-Bresson is also a sharply insightful critic and observer." "The Mind's Eye is the first compilation of his writings on photography, some of which have appeared sporadically in books and journals over the past forty-five years but have never been available in a single volume. Several of the texts have never before appeared in English." "Now ninety years old, Cartier-Bresson seldom photographs; he devotes much of his time to drawing, and remains as forceful and discerning as ever in his writings. The last section of The Mind's Eye includes his commentary on photographer friends he has known - including Robert Capa, Andre Kertesz, Ernst Haas, and Sarah Moon - which reveal the impassioned and compassionate vision for which Cartier-Bresson is beloved."--BOOK JACKET

Henri Cartier-Bresson and the artless art by Jean-Pierre Montier ( Book )
5 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Henri Cartier-Bresson is perhaps the greatest photographer of the twentieth century. In a career spanning more than sixty years, he has used his camera as an impassive and neutral third eye to capture the vagaries of human behavior and to produce some of the most memorable and compelling photographs ever published. In this impressive biographical study, Jean-Pierre Montier traces Cartier-Bresson's artistic progression from his early training as a painter and draftsman right up to the present; he provides a detailed analysis of Cartier-Bresson's most famous images and discusses the various philosophies that inform his work, notably Zen and surrealism. Drawing together a remarkable selection of the paintings, sketches, and photographs, this book is the first to attempt a serious evaluation not just of his photojournalism but of his oeuvre as a whole

The decisive moment by Henri Cartier-Bresson ( Book )
3 editions published in 1952 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Strictly speaking, The Decisive Moment is a monograph of Cartier-Bresson's best work, but it has overriding unifying factors that elevate it into a great photobook. The first is the concept of the 'decisive moment' itself, which defines the elegance of Cartier-Bresson's imagery: the instant when all the elements in the picture-frame come together to make the perfect image--not the peak of action necessarily, but the formal peak ... No one achieved it more often or better, but allied with it was Cartier-Bresson's thoroughly clear-eyed view of the world--astute, non-sentimental, beautiful, profound. Crucially, for all their formal grace, his pictures are distinguished by his humanist view of life."--The Photobook : A History Volume I / Martin Parr and Gerry Badger. London : Phaidon, 2004

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The cinéma vérité (or direct cinema) movement of the '50s and '60s was driven by a group of rebel filmmakers tired of stilted documentaries.

Rich in excerpts from vérité classics ... this is the first film to capture all the excitement of a revolution that changed movie-making forever"--Container. Includes commentary by filmmakers, and explores vérité's influence in everything from TV news to music videos to Webcams
