HENRI CARTIER BRESSON Report on Communist Shanghai - Life 1949
Cartier Bresson continued to document the changes to Shanghai against the backdrop of the new Communist regime. HCB photographs the Communist Party's celebratory parades, contrasted with the now-empty British Country Club, as other foreign nationals leave the country. HCB departed China in September 1949.
Life publishes 22 of HCB's photographs in this "back of the book" photo essay.
