Catalogue Note

One year after founding Magnum, Henri Cartier-Bresson traveled to India, capturing this photograph of women in prayer at Hari Parbal Hill in the early morning hours. He travelled to the Far East on several occasions from 1948 to 1950, and again in 1966.

The photograph offered here was first acquired in the early 1960s directly from Magnum.
