The Scrapbook is a faithful reproduction of the original album that Henri Cartier-Bresson had personally prepared for presentation at Moma in New York in 1946. Captured in 1940 by the Germans, Cartier-Bresson managed to escape from the camp and returned in 1943, to Paris, where he photographed its liberation. Meanwhile, the MoMA in New York, assuming that the great author had died in the war, decided to present a “posthumous” exhibition of his work. On his return, fascinated by the news of the exhibition, Cartier-Bresson chose the photographs he would like to exhibit. He selects and prints around 300 images, many of which have never been published before, and in 1946 leaves for New York with the prints in a suitcase. On arrival he buys a large album, a scrapbook, in which he pastes all the prints before presenting them to MoMA. The exhibition opened on 4 February 1947.
