The Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation hosts Henri Cartier-Bresson and Martine Franck’s archives. The collection is made-up of vintage prints, contact sheets, drawings, publications, correspondences, rare books, albums, films, videos, posters, invitations, etc.. It is located on the Foundation’s lower-level, in a space specifically conceived in accordance with museographical conservation standards.
An extensive inventory project on Henri Cartier-Bresson and Martine Franck’s archives is still in progress.
As always, Magnum Photos continues to manage the circulation of archived images and exhibitions, which also constitute a part of the Foundation’s collection.
Individuals may consult the collection for research purposes by making an appointment with the Foundation’s archives department.
The access to the collections is currently closed due to the moving of the Fondation to the rue des Archives next October. Any request regarding loans or appointements for research purpose will not be completed before January 2019.
