Indonésie 1949 par HCB

Henri Cartier-Bresson was in Indonesia in 1949, in time to witness the transition from Dutch control to the Indonesian Republic. Some of the pictures were featured in a Life magazine issue in 1950. I was lucky to see an exhibition of these photos in Jakarta several years ago.
