TETE A TETE - PORTRAITS BY HENRI CARTIER-BRESSON by Henri Cartier-Bresson (Introduction)

Henri Cartier-Bresson's Tête a Tête, his portraits of some of the most potent icons of the latter half of the 20th century, is an understated yet powerful and challenging book: a masterpiece of the photographer's art of composition and expression. Presented in non-chronological order, yet arranged so as to provide links and parallels in posture and facial likenesses, familiar icons easily mix with anonymous subjects. A very young Truman Capote in crumpled T-shirt, on the brink of literary fame; a very old Colette, but retaining her inquisitorial gaze; Matisse with his birds, Sartre with his pipe, Igor Stravinsky, astonishingly similar in 1946 and 1967; a beaming Che Guevara. There are also group portraits of unknowns, but none the less resonant for that: besuited men in 1950s Iran, tribes people from Kashmir, prostitutes in Mexico, the women of southern Spain, dressed eternally in black. As the art historian EH Gombrich comments in his introduction to Tête a Tête, Cartier-Bresson, in these portraits, moves significantly away from the received techniques of the "society" photographer. Instead, he "always preferred to lie in wait for the telling moment". –Catherine Taylor

Fiona Bruce introduces a visit to Durham Cathedral, where treasures include a missionary's medical kit, an early etching by Dame Laura Knight and a beautiful carriage clock discovered on a Second World War bombsite. Fiona Bruce admires a remarkable collection of rare books in the cathedral's collection, including a 7th-century bible and an early version of Magna Carta, while ceramics specialist John Axford is charmed by a late 19th-century plate whose childlike decoration belies its value. The team appraise a rather gruesome 19th-century medical kit used by a missionary in Africa who followed in the footsteps of Stanley and Livingstone, and an early etching by renowned artist Dame Laura Knight. Clocks and watches specialist Ben Wright is amazed by the story of a beautiful engraved and gilded carriage clock that was discovered in a pile of rubble on a bombsite in Durham during the Second World War. Family treasures include football mementoes belonging to a man who played for Sunderland in 1913 and a collection of medals awarded to a young RAF navigator in World War II, now the proud property of his young grandson.
