Curated by Robert Delpire, the exhibition, "Henri Cartier-Bresson – Photographe", presents 133 black and white photographs by Henri Cartier-Bresson. On display are surreal-poetic pieces from the photographer's early period, his documentary work from the time of the Résistance in Paris, and a series of photos from his travels during the sixties and seventies.
The French author Pierre Assouline once called Cartier-Bresson “the eye of the century”. Starting in the thirties, Cartier Bresson's documentation of contemporary social, political and artistic movements, clearly reflected that eye Assouline spoke of. The exhibition draws a portrait of the artist who passed away in 2004.
