54 iconic photographs of Henri Cartier-Bresson will be displayed in the historical monument Hôtel de Porcelet, the location of the Yves Brayer museum in Les Baux-de- Provence. An exhibition in cooperation with Foundation Henri Cartier-Bresson.

“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. In order to ‘give a meaning’ to the world, one has to feel oneself involved in what one frames through the viewfinder. This attitude requires concentration, a discipline of mind, sensitivity, and a sense of geometry – it is by great economy of means that one arrives at simplicity of expression.” – Henri Cartier-Bresson
