From 22 February to 31 May 2015, early works by Henri Cartier-Bresson are showing at the Musée des beaux-arts in Le Locle, Switzerland. As well as showing the beginnings of a legendary photographer, the exhibition offers insights into the early days of photojournalism.
Cartier-Bresson was 24 years old when he acquired his first Leica in 1932. With this camera, he set out to travel and observe the world – marking the start of a career that would see him co-found the Magnum Agency, and earn him the name Eye of the Century. The Musée des beaux-arts now offers an opportunity to see photographs from the first three years of Cartier-Bresson's career.
The exhibition was created in collaboration with the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation and Magnum Photos. The opening evening is on 21 February 2015.
