This exhibition, curated by Robert Delpire, presents Henri Cartier-Bresson’s poetic photographs from his early surrealist period, his documentary work from the Paris resistance movement as well as series and photographs from his travels of the 60s and 70s.

“The photography of Henri Cartier-Bresson has resulted in a body of work unique in the history of this craft, not alone in kind but in quality. Apart from the fact that he is responsible for more individual memorable images than any other photographer in his epoch, his attitude towards his art, for with him is also and most definitely an art as well as a craft-skill in reportage is based on a philosophy at once traditional, logical and exemplary.”
Lincoln Kirstein

An exhibition in cooperation with Foundation Henri Cartier-Bresson, Paris.
