Within the canon of European photography books it would be difficult to find one more famous, revered and influential as Henri Cartier-Bresson’s The Decisive Momentwrote Jeffrey Ladd in Time LightBoxin a feature on Steidl’s new edition of this ultimate photobook classic.
Originally published inthis collection of Deciskvo best work from his early years was embellished with a collage cover by Henri Matisse. He initially studied painting and began photographing in the s.
Cartier-Bresson cofounded Magnum in In the late s he returned to his original passion, drawing. Cartier-Bresson captured people in a flash in a private or telling moment, rather than how they might formally present themselves, and in the process offered an essential truth about the human condition. James Estrin The New York Times Online A decisively beautiful object that belongs in the library of anyone who cares about photography Evan Paul Laudenslager theartblog.
Gary Cockburn One Thousand Words Diligently reproduced to the finest detail, Steidl seems to have resisted the urge to over embellish the new edition with unnecessary addendums.
Cartier-Bresson likely would have dismissed an elaborate reconstruction of his book as crass and egregious. The Decisive Moment is about the aesthetics of coincidence, and the faith to follow intuition. Like every brilliant unexpected moment, things can never be truly recreated, but only faithfully retold.

Showing of 94 reviews. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. I read these reviews lamenting the horrible print quality while waiting for me pre-ordered copy to be delivered and expected to be terribly disappointed.
They were so negative I was ready to return the book without opening it.
Reviewers claim that the photos look like copies of copies and that HCB never would have let his work be presented this way. Because of these reviews, I though the Steidl facsimile of the original must have been blundered somehow. I just took my copy out of the shrink wrap, and couldn’t be more cartieg. I am Thrilled with this book. Here is some background that may be helpful. Several deciaivo ago, when I heard this book was being reprinted, I decided to see if my university’s interlibrary loan service could track down a copy is the rare, valuable, original for me to borrow, to see if I wanted to buy the Steidl edition when released.
I figured it was a longshot since a book this rare and valuable is risky to lend out. It is literally as though you are holding a brand new copy of the original in your hands except better, because the photos haven’t faded over caetier years and had hundreds of students’ hands on the bressom they look fresh as they should.
So I have to admit, I’m really baffled by the negative reviews, especially one that claims to have seen the original. If people think the photos look like copies of copies, well, that’s what you would have thought of the original too. Yeah, they’re not hyperglossy, but neither was the original book. I can tell you as someone serious about photography books and ones from Steidl as well: The content, of course, speaks for itself: So I would really advise you just see for yourself what you think.
You may be disappointed if you think they will look like digital photos. But they are not now, and they never were. What they are is faithful to HCB’s vision for the book.
His essay in this book can be I have an orginal photograph by Cartier Bresson and it is in this book. I think that this classic book has many of his greatest photographs. His essay in this book can be found in a few other books about photography. One needs to shop around for the best price for this book. It still is not cheap. This is the greatest photography book that I own. I had a chance to check out the orginal book in a library many years ago.
I am a photographer and long time photo book collector. This book is a great bargain.
Not in the 70s, 80s, 90s, not today either. Moe’s Books in Berkeley had them and I certainly spent hours over the years admiring and putting back on the shelf.
I’ve seen some stupid one-star pans in the reviews here. I can assure you, this is not gravure printing but the printing is as close to how I remember seeing the original for the first time. You won’t be sorry if you do the same.
A classic that I didn’t want to miss. The book has to set of photos. The first set from before Magnum agency and the other from there to the first years of the book was first published in You will miss some of the most remembered photos of Cartier-Bresson: But there is a lot to be amaze. The big format really do merit the quality of the content. It’s a shame that my book apparently felt during delivery, and have a little bend in one of the outer corners, although it didn’t affect the pictures.
I’m thinking to buy another one for my collection. The printing however leaves something to be desired, especially when compared to the original which was a masterpiece not only as the best work around at the time but for its incredible reproduction. I found problems in the shadow and dark areas of the printing of the current version which, in this age of technology is curious and should not have happened.
Nonetheless I am extremely happy to have a copy of it. If you’re considering purchasing this book then you know who HCB is, and you know the significance of this collection. It’s pricey, but well worth it. As a bible for photographers, the book has an excellent packaging, whatever the introduction writen by Clement Cheroux, the content of the book contains many of Bresson famous photos. The printing and the papers – materials are excellent.
It is a cartief collective photography book. One person found this helpful. I am pleased to use the reprint in order to presserve the original. See all 94 reviews.
