This exhibition, staged at the Tbilisi History Museum, presents some of the Magnum co-founder Henri Cartier Bresson’s best photographs of the French capital, taken over many years.

“For me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity, the master of the instant which, in visual terms, questions and decides simultaneously. It is by economy of means that one arrives at simplicity of expression.” – Henri Cartier-Bresson
