In 1947, Henri Cartier-Bresson, along with Robert Capa, George Rodger, David Seymour and William Vandivert, founded Magnum Photos. That same year, Cartier-Bresson travelled to India, where he produced some of the seminal works of his career including the current lot.
This work is a jumble of moving limbs and faces, as the men throw up their arms with wild abandon and shoes discarded. This captivating image exhibits what Cartier-Bresson termed “the decisive moment”; the intuitive instant in which the photographer captures a unique and perfectly balanced scene.
