"Cartier-Bresson worked on The Europeans for five years, a short period if one considers that the famous Images à la sauvette [The Decisive Moment] of 1952, was the fruit of twenty years' labour. Its presents a dense portrait of a Europe where, ten years after the war, accumulated ruins, as well as traces of hunger and misery on people's faces were still clearly visible. In the preface, nevertheless, Cartier-Bresson states that whether we are just passing or settled down in a particular place, in order to express a country or situation, one needs to have somehow established a close working relationship, to be supported by a human community; living takes time, and roots take shape slowly...Amplified and enriched, the work of the photographer with soles of wind is revealed in all it's grandeur."--Jean Clair, Maison Europeene de la Photographie, Paris
