Cartier-Bresson was fully aware of this coexistence and advocated a balance : there is a reciprocal reaction between both these worlds which in the long run form only one. It would be a most dangerous over-simplification to stress the importance of one at the cost of the other in that constant dialogue.

Simplicity in capturing the image! Very lovely drawings by a master photographer.

I teaching drawing at a city college and was introduced to this book from one of my students. It's a moving illustration of what can be done with the simplicity of line, how it can create an emotional understanding as well as record what stands before you. Whether dealing with the thundering animal skeletons in the natural history museum or giving the impression of a timeless Paris street corner, Bresson's line flies about to give you the moment and movement he sensed. A must for those interested in the poetry of drawing.

it is very interesting that HCB returned to drawing late in his life. the drawings are quite small. less than 8 by 10 giving them a snapshot quality. it is clear he worked quickly with simple and lively lines. his drawings show how concentrating on drawing areas of light and shadow almost abstractly can produce quite realistically renderings. the city scape are particularly effective.
