Although Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004) is widely considered one of the world’s greatest photographers, much about his early work remains unknown. For this reason, Cartier-Bresson’s personal scrapbook of his best work from his rich early period (1932-46) provides an extraordinary window onto his process and artistic development, documenting both his travels to Spain and Mexico and his encounters with Surrealism and modern art.

The exhibition is organized by Agnes Sire of the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson in Paris, where it first appeared; it will have its sole American venue at ICP. The publication that accompanies the exhibition reproduces all the images chosen by Cartier-Bresson, as well as his correspondence and historical documents.

Susie J. Horgan’s book Punk Love is a finely-packaged and telling collection of images documenting the late 70s DC Punk movement, with words by Henry Rollins and Ian Mackaye. The images from their days at Haagen-Dazs in Georgetown and of Ian skating are worth the cover price alone. Essential bookshelf material for those among us desperately trying to buy back the 7″s we had in our youth.

Read about it, or just buy it here.
