Henri Cartier-Bresson’s provocative statements against photography are well known. We know that since 1974 he has devoted himself almost exclusively to observational drawing, his primary vocation, his favorite art, which he considers to be a “meditation” and a “hard pleasure.
“It seems to me that we have always been friends, Henri Cartier-Bresson and me. My elder by a year, however, I know that it was he who first discovered and revealed to me most of the things for which we would later become passionate.”
André Pieyre de Mandiargues
Self-portraits, portraits of his friends, copies of the great masters, nudes, landscapes, views of Paris or elsewhere, he made hundreds of drawings. The Cahiers dessinés propose to discover this lesser known work of one of the most celebrated photographers in the world.
