23 Dec 2005-2 Apr 2006. French photographer Henri-Cartier Bresson died in 2004 at the age of 96. His life had spanned the 20th century from beginning to end and his photographs chronicled the political, economic and artistic changes of a world in flux. From Africa in the 1920s, to Spain in the throes of the Civil War, from the liberation of Paris in 1944, to New Delhi and Gandhi in 1948, just hours before his assassination, Bressons camera captured the salient images of the 20th century. Bresson also worked with Jean Renoir on several films and was one of the founders of the famous photo agency, Magnum. His classic photo portraits of his contemporaries including Sartre, Faulkner, Camus and Mauriac have become portraits for eternity. This retrospective at the Foam Photogallery includes some of Bressons unpublished photographs, texts, drawings and films alongside his more famous works. Admission 6 concessions 5 Daily 10.00-17.00 Thurs-Fri 10.00-21.00
