Cartier-Bresson in Moscow

In 1954 French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson traveled to Moscow with his wife. The Soviet Union was experiencing a slight thaw after years Stalinism, and Cartier-Bresson was allowed to photograph anything he liked except military installments, railway centers, panoramic views of cities, and certain public monuments. The photographer claims he was mainly interested in photographing the people of Moscow. I've picked out several of Cartier-Bresson's photographs which show his ability to capture the character of the Muscovite. I've limited the captions in order to let the photographs speak for themselves. Blow the photographs up to get a better view of them, if your browser allows it. For some reason my browser won't allow me to enlarge the first photograph.


A Caucasian









Inside Tolstoy's House


The Tretyakov Gallery



This statue depicts Lenin in hiding shortly before the October Revolution



Krushchev at Sports Day



In the Lenin Library. Overshadowing the students are the kindly, philosophical architects of the Revolution. I feel that this photograph and the previous one are closely related.



From: The People of Moscow, by Henri Cartier-Bresson, New York, Simon and Schuster,1955.
