Henri Cartier-Bresson Retrospective

April 15, 2014


From February to June 9, 2014 there will be a 70 year retrospective of photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson on display at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, France. Along with being an astounding documentary photographer, he also coined the term “decisive moment”in reference to what made his images so profound. In 1947, Cartier-Bresson, along with with Robert Capa, David Seymour, William Vandivert and George Rodger, formed Magnum Photos, which is today one of the most well known international photographic cooperatives with well-known members such as Ansel Adams, Mary Ellen Mark, and Alec Soth.
