(Source: The Montreal Gazette) Henri Cartier-Bresson’s photographs are of some of the most epic events of the last century, beautifully printed in black-and-white. The vast majority of those gelatin silver prints were made by one man between 1967 and 1997. He was Voja Mitrovic, a master printer at Paris’ celebrated Picto photo lab.

Over the years, Cartier-Bresson presented Mitrovic with 28 signed and inscribed prints, some rarely seen by the public — until now.

Christie’s is auctioning the prints, plus four other Cartier-Bresson-signed prints, on Oct. 4-5. The auction house believes they will fetch more than $400,000.
