The book and its images have since influenced generations of photographers. Its English title has defined the notion of the famous formal peak in which all elements in the photographic frame accumulate to form the perfect image. Paired with the artist?s humanist viewpoint, Cartier-Bresson?s photography has become part of the world?s collective memory.
This new publication is a meticulous facsimile of the original book. It comes with an additional booklet containing an essay on the history of The Decisive Moment by Centre Pompidou curator Cl‚ment Ch‚roux.
