"Mexican Notebooks" is a touching and intimate look at everyday life in Mexico from 1934-1964. Alongside text by Carlos Fuentes, Cartier-Bresson's experienced eye has captured the powerful light that alludes to heat, the mood of poverty, and the history that pervades this country. At different points this book is both disturbing and humorous, spiritual and abstract, yet is, at all times, characterized by Cartier-Bresson's central hallmark: he had a unique capability to capture everyday people in ordinary situations in a manner that was remarkable in its beauty and simplicity.
