In 1932, at the age of twenty-four, Henri Cartier-Bresson acquired a hand-held Leica camera, and his previously casual interest in photography became a passion. Over the next three years he created one of the most original and influential bodies of work in the history of photography. Work from this period of his life is now on show in Brazil, at the Galeria de Fotos do SESI-SP.
