In 1935, when the influential New York collector Julien Levy conceived the exhibition Documentary and Anti-Graphic Photographs by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans and Manuel Alvarez Bravo, no one could imagine the eminent place this trio would come to occupy in the avant-garde of their time, nor the immense influence they would have on future generations of photographers. Gathered together again for the first time since the historical exhibition, these period prints represent an exceptional set of essential and sometimes unknown images, revealing the early works of three masters of photography. Also included in this publication are essays by Peter Galassi, Daniel Girardin, Ian Jeffrey, Jeff L. Rosenheim, Agn√ęs Sire and Michel Tournier.
