Henri Cartier-Bresson

A decade after his death, the acclaimed photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson is celebrated with an exhibition at the Centre Pompidou.

Considered the father of photojournalism, the French photographer set new standards for his peers and successors by developing a style known as street photography, or life reportage.

From the mid-1920s Cartier-Bresson was known as a master of photographic composition and for his ability to seize the right moment.

The exhibition includes his early photographs from his journeys around Europe, Mexico and the US; his war-time anti-fascist activism in New York; and his work at the photographic agency Magnum over subsequent decades.

On display are more than 500 photographs, drawings, paintings, films and documents.

11.00-21.00. Tues closed.
