Henri does Havana

Cuba by Bresson for LIFE March 15, 1963 issue

Toronto. On page 28 of the March 15, 1963 issue of LIFE magazine begins an article on Cuba after the revolution featuring the words and photos of the great French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson. Bresson is usually thought of in terms of his Leica and Decisive Moment photograph in France.

Take a gander at the photos and prose in this LIFE article from over 60 years ago. Castro had taken over Cuba in a world famous revolution. Worsening relations with America had his country black-balled by the mighty USA.

My thanks to good friend George Dunbar for unearthing this bit of history on the famous French photographer.
