About the Author 
Born in 1908, Henri-Cartier Bresson studied painting in the late 1920s and committed himself to photography in the early 1930s. In 1947 he founded the photography agency Magnum. His work is featured in the collections of several prominent museums around the world.  
Book Description 
Produced over six visits to India, from 1947 through the early 80s, these dramatic images are shaped by an eye and mind legendary for their intelligent empathy and graphic honesty. Cartier-Bresson's pictures of refugee camps after the partition speak with the same passion as those of the Maharaja of Barodea's birthday celebration. This seminal artist's extraordinary gift of observation and his connections to the leaders of post-colonial India inform all these photographs, revealing the essence of a country that has long captured the world's imagination.
