Presented for the first time in English, this volume brings together twelve notable interviews and conversations with Henri Cartier-Bresson carried out between 1951 and 1998. While many of us are acquainted with his images, there are so few texts available by Cartier-Bresson on his photographic process. These verbal, primary accounts capture the spirit of the master photographer and serve as a lasting document of his life and work, which has inspired generations of photographers and artists.
Here, Cartier-Bresson speaks passionately, with metaphors and similes, about the world and photography. A man of principles shaped by the evolving eras of the twentieth century, his major influences included Surrealism, European politics of the 1930s and '40s, the Second World War, and his experiences with Magnum as cofounder and reporter. This book illuminates his thoughts, personality, and reflections on a seminal career.

In his own words: Photography] is a way of questioning the world and questioning yourself at the same time. . . . It entails a discipline. For me, freedom is a basic frame of reference, and inside that frame are all the possible variations. Everything, everything, everything. But it is within a frame. The important thing is the sense of limit. And visually, it is the sense of form. Form is important. The structure of things. The space.

Julie Jones

Julie Jones learnt to cook from her mother. Never anything fancy but always packed with flavour, loaded with butter and made with love. She re-trained as a chef at the age of 30 and did a short stint at Heston Blumenthal's pub The Hinds Head and also The Fat Duck. Completely inspired, she realised how flavour could be taken to a whole new level.

She has found her creative space on Instagram to be a form of therapy, and has discovered great warmth, support and a shared passion for food and baking from her 14.1k followers. Julie runs a successful supper club from home hosting weekly dinner parties.

These are booked up until July 2017 purely through word-of-mouth recommendations. She has appeared on BBC TV's new daytime cooking contest programme Yes Chef, judged by Pierre Koffman. She lives in Carlisle in the north of England and has been told she's a 'TV natural'.
