Henri Cartier-Bresson's writings on photography and photographers have been published sporadically over the past 45 years. His essays--several of which have never before been translated into English--are collected here for the first time. The Mind's Eye features Cartier-Bresson's famous text on "the decisive moment" as well as his observations on Moscow, Cuba and China during turbulent times. These essays ring with the same immediacy and visual intensity that characterize his photography.

I really enjoyed this title. It reads like a collection of short exerpts from a journal - which it very well may be. There is nothing technical in the book, but rather it's about how and WHY to photograph which has become very important to me late. It may not be a very useful book for someone just beginning, but likely invaluable for someone trying to sort out their place in photography.
