Heinz Bütler

Heinz Bütler's Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Impassioned Eye (2003) is a charming and fascinating window into the life's work of the French photographer. Cartier-Bresson himself, near the end of his life, talks about his experiences and methods. A range of enthusiasts offer their appreciations; Arthur Miller, for one, mentions a special photograph of Marilyn Monroe (above). A luscious selection of photographs, such as the surrealist-influenced photo of a man and shoes (third still) and a gritty view of New York City, goes beyond Cartier-Bresson's best-known images.
